You can compare one palette with another.
- From the Palette menu, click Compare
- The Compare dialogue will then be displayed
- Select the first palette to compare. You can either select the palette currently being edited, or click Browse to select any supported palette file
- Select the second palette to compare. You can either select the palette currently being edited, or click Browse to select any supported palette file
After selecting a palette, the dialogue will display the underlying format, if the palette has been saved, and the number of colours in the palette.
Comparing palettes can result in one of three outcomes
- Match. The palettes had the same colours in the same colour space
- Colour Match. The palettes had the same RGB colours, but the underlying definitions used a different colour space or precision. This typically happens when comparing palettes of different formats, for example Adobe Swatch to Gimp
- Mismatch. The palettes did not match
The palette displayed to the right of the dialogue will highlight any different swatches with a red outline, and also display the RGB values it was compared against.
Only colour data is compared; swatch names are currently ignored.
