Pseudogrey.

My first post at this forum. Wanted to share a GIMP technique that can render true Pseudogrey. Been toying with Sample Colorize plugin (on and off) for years to create fake Pseuogrey output, but I finally figure out (stumbled into; lol) a way to create true Pseudogrey output. Why the motivation? Create a 512X512 block and run the gradient tool (black to white) diagonally across and then count the colors then you will be a believer too. Biggest reason is reduced posterization.

Pseudogrey tutorial: http://justpaste.it/pseudog_gimp (many pertinent links here as well)
