DeBabelizer

A graphics processing program for Windows and Mac from Equilibrium, Sausalito, CA (www.equilibrium.com). DeBabelizer has been used to perform operations on groups of images without user intervention such as resizing images or changing them from one format to another. After the DeBabelizer script is created, all the images in a list are processed. After 21 years of operation, in 2014, DeBabelizer 6.1 was made freeware without support. It was superseded by MediaRich HotFolder, which included similar functions along with many more in a highly advanced automated content management system for websites.

DeBabelizer makes remapping images to either a custom palette, a system palette or a Netscape-compatible palette an easy, one-step process.
Creating your own custom palettes, limiting the colors DeBabelizer remaps to within a given palette and controlling dithering (positioning of color pixels to simulate colors that do not exist in a 256 indexed graphic) are easily handled by DeBabelizer.
You can let Debabelizer do the work for you by choosing "Remove Duplicate and Unused Colors" from a palette, or "Reduce Colors," or you can manually set the pixel depth of your images.
