Portrait palette color transfer issues?

Hey homies,
So for several sprites I'm working on, I've had this problem where the portraits look funny in Shishi, even if they look fine on the spritesheet (I am aware that the portrait palette is the 9th row down in Graphicsgale).  The problem is that there is apparently not a 1 to 1 relationship between the sprite colors (first row) and portrait colors (9th row) - some sprite colors are not represented at in the portrait (meaning some portrait colors cover 2 sprite colors).  Anyway, the whole reverse engineering portrait palettes seems, tricky - Is there a simple way to insert a portrait (from a separate .bmp and insert its palette without it getting all wonky or losing colors?

Thanks

Here, I went and whipped this up quickly for you or anyone else with the question in the future.

This looks brilliant.  If only I  wasn't handicapped from the beginning...So I find no way to access the "Load Palette" Option - I'd thought it might be an outdated version of GG, but I got the latest version and I couldn't find it there either...So, how does one find this mysterious "load palette" button?

It's the button with an arrow pointing down with a bar under it, i.e. the first thing under the 256 colour grid.

Anything is possible as long as it is within the hardware's limits. (ie. disc space, RAM, Video RAM, processor, etc.)

Do you have the ability to see the palette turned on? Should be in the view option up top, iirc
