Bonne Année et mes Meilleurs Voeux pour 2010 ! Un santé de Fer et des couleurs à profusion !

Merci BEAUCOUP pour le Cadeau, je vais tenter d'installer tout cela sous gimp et mypaint 0.71 (cela doit être pareil sous la version 0.8 qui n'est pas encore sortie...)

Grâce à DURIAN j'ai découvert ton art, GPS et mypaint !! MERCI ! MERCI !!

A bientôt,
ps : Je pensais que tu allais continuer le projet DURIAN jusqu'au bout... snif...

Just wanted to mention, that users of Arch Linux can get now this pre-installed when using gimp-studio package (http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=31849)

thanx for the paletes.. they are SUPER!

I do not see how to load them up for MyPaint.. it is not easy, version 0.8.0


10. David Revoy saturday 20 march 2010, 10:56

Thanks all !

@Ag : I included your link in my DVD Chaos&Evolutions for ArchLinux users. Thanks !

@William : Palettes for Mypaint were for the Iportnov branch developement ( 0.7 ) . Maybe the palette will re-appear in the 0.9 series. If you install your version from Giterious source code, you can switch to the Iportnov branch and use his version with palette.

Hi, I'm working with Windows Vista and my MyPaint hasn't a "Load Pallete" submenu :(

Is there any other way to install it?

Hi, I love your work (and your goodies too!). Just a question: is there a way to load your colour palette in the new version of MyPaint?
Thanks a lot!

Hi Tayete :
Thanks for the comments ; unfortunately, the feature 'palette' for Mypaint is still not at the horizon of 0.9.2 or 1.0 ...

I'm using GIMP 2.6, and i just downloaded your palettes, but I can't seem to figure out how to have them appear with the program. I followed the instructions and put them in the proper folder. Any advice?

15. REVOY David sunday 24 april 2011, 16:12

@AS : If the *.gpl palette files is well pasted into (your-user-name)/.gimp-2.6/palettes/ , you should saw it in Gimp.
Try when open Gimp , try in the menu bar to go to Windows>Dockable Panel > Palettes ; and in the palette panel, go to the top : the name is "1-All color for good choice". You can double click on it to use it.

Hi David,

Thanks a lot indeed for your last contribution: luckily for us, you never quit! :D

Just in case someone is interested, I have read there is a new feature in the "upcoming" stable Gimp 2.10 release (to be released somewhere at the end of 2013...) which concerns the palette tool as well.

Here it is.

Here is the first YouTube video concerning this new feature (there are 4 of them):

Happy new year 2013 to everyone

@Silvio Grosso : Thanks for the link Silvio ( and Happy New Year ! ) ; I ignored those improvements. They feel really advanced. Good because I wouldn't mind to use Gimp as a palette editor now Mypaint and Krita are compatible with the palette files. I actually do it. Thanks again, good info.
