 +**Palette Structure** refers to a logical mapping between palette indices or ranges of indices and what the color entries in those ranges will actually be used for.
  
 +This is related to preparing pixel art images for [[palette effect|palette effects]] in [[wp>​Indexed_color|indexed color]] graphic modes.
 +
 +Two examples for this are faction colors in strategy games and colors for different pieces of clothes in role playing games.
 +
 +In the example here, image and palette are structured so that each element uses its own logical sub-palette within the whole palette.
