This utility allows the user to convert a mass amount of images to a 256 color palette in a matter of seconds. It works really fast and the user interface is quite simple and easy to understand.

In addition to using this utility to convert images to Dink's color palette, you can also use DinersPal to convert images to any 256 color palette of your choice. This could be very handy if you ever wanted to replace all Dink's graphics with ones you made yourself.

The only drawback I found with DinkersPal is that there is no option to select the method in which the 256 color palette is applied to your images. For example, Error Diffusion Dithering or Nearest Color Matching. This, in my humble opinion, is quite a big drawback because often an image will look really poor when using one method, but look perfectly fine using another.

In conclusion, I recommend this file to anyone who needs a good palette conversion utility. But since there is no method of color palette application option, I feel DinersPal rates only as "good". Let's hope the author includes it in the next version and I'll give it a perfect 10!
