Colour Palette from a Photo

 

This is NOT my idea-just a technique I learned somewhere along the way

So get yourself a photo

I got mine at Morguefile.com

Open your PSP and open your Photo

Crop it so you have only the colors you want showing

Effects - Distortion Effects-Pixellate-25 symmetric checked

Now get your rectangular selection tool and select around 5-6 squares and crop to selection

Here's my Palette:

That's it!
