Palette swapping like in MS Paint? (NO PLUGINS)

Recommended Posts

Swapping color palettes like that seems like something associated with indexed colors. PDN surfaces are full color, with 8 bits each for red, green, blue, and alpha. I doubt PDN is the program you want to use for what you want to do. I don't think there's much built-in support (or even plugin support) for manipulating indexed-color files.

You can use the Magic Wand to select a specific color value, and then it's possible to fill the selection with a different color ... it's not "palette swapping" but it'll achieve the same thing. One color at a time.

Excluding plugins would be excluding one of the biggest reasons to use Paint.NET.  And if you download exclusively from this forum (especially from Ego Eram Reputo's plugin index), you can be sure that every plugin you download has been checked and vetted by people on the forum to be just as safe as the program itself.

And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
