    Tip: There are several good painting programs, some of which are shareware and can be downloaded from the net. Check an online shareware site. One, such as PaintShop Pro, may support this palette file format. For further assistance refer to the manual accompanying your painting program.

  1. Double-click Nexus Portrait icon.
  2. Click Import

Select the portion of the image you want to use. The colors will be converted automatically to the TK palette.
