Question Creating A Custom Color Palette from An Image?

Hi!

I recall seeing a tutorial somewhere for this years ago, but for the life of me, I can't find it again.

What I would like to do is take an image and sample all the colors from it to create a custom color palette for a project I am working on.

Does anyone here know how to do this or can you point me to a tutorial? I'm using Photoshop CS2.

Thanks!

Re: Creating A Custom Color Palette from An Image?

My knowledge of color management in Photoshop is sort of limited.
If I understand correctly, the way one would use a custom color pallette is let's say for retouching one just picks a color and applies it with brush.

I was always wondering, is there a way to use a custom color palette to replace colors of an image automatically. Let's say one makes a custom color palette of a pastel image, and then applies it to another image to replace original colors with pastel ones.

any thoughts?

Pavel

Pavel,

What i was refering to in my post was a technique where you can "sample" the colors from any image and make a palette from them.

If I recally correctly there is a way to do what you say. I can't remember what function this is. I haven't got PS open right now but next time I open it up I will look and report back for you. I think basically you can selectively replace color using one of the menu functions.
