Working with CorelDRAW Palettes part 2, writing .pal files
Continuing my investigation into CorelDRAW palettes, this brief article describes how to write .pal files for use with CorelDRAW! 3.0.
In my previous articles on reading and writing colours from various palette/swatch formats, I left CMYK conversion as an exercise for the reader and only demonstrated RGB aspects. This article demonstrates how to convert colours in CMYK format to RGB and vice versa.
I've recently been updating our series on dithering to include ordered dithering. However, in order to fully demonstrate this I also updated the sample to include basic color quantizing with a fixed palette. While color reduction and dithering are related, I didn't want to cover both topics in a single blog post, therefore this post covers finding the nearest color via Euclidean distance.
The [ColorPicker Controls](https://github.com/cyotek/Cyotek.Windows.Forms.ColorPicker) have been updated to version 126.96.36.199. This is a fairly substantial update, with quite a few bug fixes and enhancements to the code. I'll also briefly discuss plans for future updates to the library.
