As a game developer, I use Aseprite not just as a pixel art application but I create images that serves as data for some systems in a game or an application/tool. In these cases, based on what colour certain pixels are, the application does something. In reality the color doesn’t really matter, an integer value would be more useful, the color only helps as I edit the image.
Could we have an export option, when the color mode is on indexed, where the app would save not the colours as an image but a list/grid of numbers where each number is the corresponding index value for the pixels in an image.
Could be something like:
Where leading 2 numbers are the dimensions of the image and then the list of indexes.
