Of course I know gimp is in feature freeze, I just wanted to get my
ideas written down because I tend to forget those too easily ;)

As Tom replied already, the idea is to have its own filename and
file-format and parameter settings...  Makes work easy when one wants to
do intermediate snapshots to see for instance how the image looks on a
webpage and still be able to write the xcf file from time to time.

Not the way that my mind came up with, but another possibility to
implement it.  However I would be rather happy not to have another
dialog window open to be able to use it.

My first idea was to have it in the color part of the
main toolbox as a pop-up menu bound to the color-buttons...  Having an
auto-palette that gets saved was my second idea - both appear good to me
but the first option may be an inconsistent addition to the current
user-interface.

I think I remember someone saying the toolbox already has too many
buttons and therefore should be redesigned some day.  I can't remember
though if the suggested solution was by making popup boxes to more
general buttons.  This could make my first proposal for color history
consistent with toolbox handling.

This is just something to think about if/how it would be implemented in
the next version of The GIMP.


Thomas.
