Converting to the Web Palette

Designing with web colors is one method to prevent dithering. The other opportunity is to add (or preserve) web-safe colors in the conversion process from RGB to Indexed Color. As part of this process, you will be asked to select a palette for the image. The colors from the palette will be used to approximate the full color range from the original RGB graphic. See Common Palettes for descriptions of palette options in popular graphics programs.
