Yeah, I'm sure it's partly related to my monitor.  I'm going to pick up a Spyder4 or colourmonki as soon as I can afford it.

The real question here is: why are all your images so washed out? Monitor calibration?

Honestly I was thinking the same thing!

I'm not following the part on "non-contiguous filling to replace colors."

It means using the fill tool with 'contiguous' option unticked, so it replaces every instance of that colour rather than only connected pixels.

Basically a quick way to edit your palette without being in indexed mode.

What program is this in? Sounds extremely useful.

I've seen it in multiple programs. Photoshop has it for example.

Very few people have the cash for a program that expensive.

CONFESSION: I'm a Photoshop Magic Wand whore.
I usually have Contiguous disabled.
I'm constantly pressing CTRL-H to hide (toggle) the ugly mask to the point where if I wasn't so lazy I would bind it to something else.
I also heavily use SHIFT and ALT click to add and remove entire colours (across the whole image) to the mask.

In my mind I've nick-named this technique Mask Painting.
It allows me to lazily create textures and rendering with large circle or square brushes without clobbering surrounding details.
The mask is hidden so I can see clearly the changes that are being made.
It always requires pixel-level cleanup but massively speeds up the process for me.

Graphicsgale has this tool as well, and yes I use it excessively as well.
