I want to use GIMP to create the palette automatically from a series of colors in squares that I have ready, but I can't find the option in this series of instructions:

Import a New Palette

The Import a New Palette dialog has a few controls, but these are straightforward. Firstly click the Image radio button and then the drop-down menu beside it to ensure that you have selected the image you wish to use. If you have made a selection to select just part of the image, click the Selected Pixels only tick box.

    Hi watercollider, this is a very confusing question. It looks like you answered your own question. Could you maybe edit your question and tell us what exactly your issue is? – PieBie Nov 27 '18 at 8:25
  • @PieBie Looks like OP found a text tutorial, but has troubles following the steps. – Socowi Nov 28 '18 at 10:43

Here is a record of the steps you already pointed out.

The mentioned image radio button is inside the Import Palette... dialog. It seems like you have not opened that dialog so far and therefore couldn't find the radio button.
