LUT Loaded

Radiobutton to load an external LUT color scheme. Apply this and you will be asked to open a new LUT with the file selection window. The tables are looked for in the path set by the $XMEDCONLUT environment variable or the etc directory within the main installation directory.
The simple LUT file format: (with a constant total size of 768 bytes)
                      256 x Red   byte values
                      256 x Green byte values
                      256 x Blue  byte values
Actually, any file will be read without checking the size. So, you're Looking for some really weird colors?
And there is more, you can now convert any GIMP gradient to (X)MedCon's used lookup table as mentioned here?.
