plug-in: new - Gradient From Palette
This plugin will generate a gradient using the palette colors in the range specified by the first index and last index parameters.
Several gradient types can be generated (Smooth, Cyclic and Discrete)
· In a smooth gradient each segment of the gradient is a smooth transition between two colors.
· A cyclic gradient is a smooth gradient with one extra segment added at the end, to chain the last color to the first one.
· In a discrete gradient, each segment is a solid mass of color.
The gradient segments can be sorted automatically based on several criteria (luminance, value, hue, saturation, etc...)
There's also an option to invert the resulting gradient.
