Editing Colors in Palette Pictures

CMYK and RGB pictures are true color systems, because you define each color used. Palette pictures are different because they use a specified number of colors selected from a true color system. Colors are referred to by number instead of by their color components.

1. Choose the Change item in the Palette submenu of the Effects menu.

The Change Palette dialog box will open. Click on a color box to pick the color to edit. Alternatively, drag the slider to cycle through the colors, or enter the palette color number into the text control.

2. Change the color components for the color.

Drag the red (R), green (G) and blue (B) sliders to change the palette color.

The Change Palette dialog box also allows you to swap and copy palette colors. Copy duplicates a color used in the picture to another position in the palette. This will change the appearance of the picture definitely. Swap exchanges two colors in the palette. This will change the appearance of the picture, but remapping the colors will restore the exact appearance of the picture because swapping colors does not change the palette.

To copy a color to another color: Select the first color and click on the Copy button. The button will stay selected. Select the second color by clicking on its color box.

To swap two colors: Select the first color and click on the Swap button. The button will stay selected. Select the color to swap with the first by clicking on its color box.
