This is a great tutorial, even if it is a tad promotional for Linux based programs.

The one thing missing of course is the ability of batch processing files with the dink palette. the Gimp can't do this... but Photoshop can, and so can PSP from v8 (or so I believe).

Also not covered is appling a palette while maintaining the indicies (which is what you need to do when doing a screen grab in DinkEdit or the main game). This is fairly vital info.

Dinker's pal seems to be able to batch process, but can't apply a error diffusion process to the procedure. This process and it's importance are explained in this tutorial. Read it for more info, it's not a large download.

Good for those people who want to use the Gimp and apply the palette.
