Hello Aseprite Community!
I’m struggling with palettes in general. I want to develop a game and I realized, not even a 256 color palette will be enough. It’s OK, even SNES had 12 bit color palette so I decided to go further than 256 too. I want a unified palette for the whole game but what sprites I already made as practice… my generic 256 palette was not good enough.
So I want to make a bigger, at most 1024, but currently I have a 540+ color palette. Maybe it’ll be enough. I’ll see.
I made the palette in GIMP as a png file. It’s a generic 60 hue - 9 shades palette plus greyscales palette. Might be enough but I can’t get it there in Aseprite. When I want to create palette from image, I got all the colors I think, but I can’t sort them as I want to… sorting by hue doesn’t do enough, because it doesn’t sort by brightness / value / saturation. If I sort by saturation, then it won’t sort by hue.
Can I directly import that image as a palette somehow or sort the colors properly?
My palette is drawn like: sorted by hue with about 6 hue steps horizontally and sorted by saturation / value vertically. I wouldn’t use indexed colors of course because of the 256 color limit.
