Image Colormap

The Image Colormap shows the palette assigned to the image. The palette mapping is drawn as a vertical bar on the right border of the Image Window. The figure below shows the Colormap in a fragment showing the right side of the Image Window. In this example the color map shows a grayscale palette.


The Colormap is a hot region of the Image Window. The following functions are supported:
