I was thinking of getting the trial version first and if it all works out, then yea. And if you don't mind me asking, if we paste the old pic over the indexed pic ( using Paint), wouldn't the pic be un-indexed again? I tried pasting my old pic over the new one in irfanview and the pallete changed to 256-color again. Thanks anyway.
Umm no. I don't have Photoshop (yet) since I rarely use it. But I guess I will give it a shot. Thanks. Anyway, if you do happen to find out why indexing doesn't work for me, I would be really grateful if you could pm me.
