The Results.....

I have managed to use simple pattern dithering to reduce an image from true colour down to 216 websafe colours.

Why would you want to use the websafe palette? Is IE6 being the bottleneck once again? YouTube is phasing out support for that browser, so I think it's fairly safe for everyone to do that by now.

It's for a DS project, I'm struggling with one of the graphic modes, so I'm using 8bit instead. However, I need to keep a few palette entries spare for a different part of the display and the websafe palette was the first thing that popped into my head for using less than 256 colours.


...I think the output from the code is quite good considering i'm not searching the palette for the best match colour.

- Update -
I just attempted to do some floyd Stienberg dithering to the same websafe palette. The results came out quite good I think. All I really did was to BASICify some of the source from
ownloadcode/Floyd-Steinberg_dithering_©">http://en.literateprograms.org/Specialownloadcode/Floyd-Steinberg_dithering_©
I didn't expect it to work first time

Nice - I think you did a better job than Paint Shop Pro's dithering, too

Yeah looks nice, just looks like you took the image and added a texture to it

It looks a bit speckly to me, perhaps later I will try some sort of custom palette, maybe use only the 256 most used colours or something.

OK, here's a bash at using 256 most used colours from the image.

The converted image only uses 215 colours! I had to remove the dithering though, it went a bit crap, not a clue why yet.

yup, its using the most used 256 colours, which, isn't such a good idea now that I think of it. However, I can't think of any other way to do it, other than a fixed palette, which can look worse

Woohoo!!!!!!

I do believe I have done an ok job on this now. I cheated a lot on the palette reduction, instead of using a whole bunch of crazy analysis on the image, I just averaged out the colours and chose 256 of them.

OK, cleaned the code up a little, added a couple of extra dithering patterns. I'm getting slightly different palettes now, now sure exactly why, perhaps something to do with the sorting. Anyway, the output still looks good and its a bit faster.

They look awesome. At first I was confused because I couldn't tell if the ones on the right were meant to be the 256 colour versions or the originals. At a glance some of those really do look the same.

One small point, some of pallettes seem to contain a bright pink colour even though it's not used in the picture. Is that a bug?

Diablos: That's probably the default masking colour.

I forced a few grey values and bright pink (255,0,255) into the palette, I need it for a project i'm working on, it doesn't hurt the image at all.
