Palette colors sorter (my tool/program)

on: February 03, 2009, 05:16:56 am
Hello! I have made the useful program for pixel artists. Now it can sort palette of pictures from the Internet only.
Have you any ideas how to improve this small tool?

Edit: Link removed as it seems it has a trojan

Hi,
Interesting (and handy!) tool, it reminds me of one I was going to make but haven't gotten around to.

My number 1 recommendation for improvement:   
  Make the source code available.

Really nothing else could help quality quite as much as that.

Other comments:
* In my opinion, with the default settings, the last three rows should be merged, considering how long the top row is. This may relate to the way you measure hue and saturation.
* You may need to switch to a more accurate colorspace like L*a*b to get really good quality sorting. For instance, try your program on  http://pixelation.wayofthepixel.net/Themes/dark/images/smflogo.gif -- IMO it produces quite confusing results.
If you insist on being pessimistic about your own abilities, consider also being pessimistic about the accuracy of that pessimistic judgement.

If it is genuinely a trojan it might be an idea for an admin to delete the link
to save anyone catching it...whatever it is. Just a thought
