Bitmap2LCD : Working with Custom Color Palettes

Bitmap2LCD is a tool for programming small Graphic LCDs in embedded systems and a programmable graphic and text processing tool.

Working with Custom Color Palettes

From V3.8e , the above functions have been moved to the COLOR PALETTE tab , Main Menu

In the Output + Settings / Main menu, for the color mode range going from 256 to 262k Colors you can load a Custom Color Palette by loading a graphic file (BMP/JPG/PNG) that contains the exact number of reference colors, for example 256 Colors for the Custom 256 colors Palette.

The “Custom Color Palette” will override the “Default Color Palette” in a particular project other than Default.LCD (see below about projects)

To load a custom color palette, just create/switch to a project different than Default.LCD and switch to the correct color mode (for example 256 colors), then click on the “Load a custom Color Palette” item in the Output + Settings main menu (blue arrow). The Color Palette of the Reference Graphic will then be loaded.

To delete a Custom Color Palette, delete the project name, for example, MyProject.LCD
