Palettes List:

The Palette List provides you with some standard palettes:

If you pass a palette to the dialog the "Image Colors" item is added to the palette list to view the current colors in the passed palette.

Left Pane

The Left Pane of the Customize Palette dialog displays the colors that you can add to your palette. This pane is not editable and it has two modes of display; it either displays lists of individual colors (palettes), or continuous colors based on a particular color model. When displaying palettes, you can select multiple individual colors using the <Ctrl> key, and a range of consecutive colors using the <Shift> key.

Right Pane

The Right Pane of the Customize Palette displays the list of colors that you have chosen. (It is empty until you begin to choose colors). After selecting a single color or a group of colors in the left pane, you can add them to your list of chosen colors in the right pane by clicking the Add button or by dragging them into the right pane. You can re-arrange the colors in the right pane by clicking and dragging them to their new position, or by using one of the pre-defined sort methods listed in the Sort drop-down list box.
