Color palette :
If you work with your own colors, make your own color palette with the alpha channel,
so you can easily switch between your colors.

There are color differences in the different versions of Psp.
Therefore, use the html codes of the color palette to be sure,
that you have the same colors. Also when merging layers, there may be color differences.
