in reply to How to keep Imager's image files small ?

This is fairly simple:

  1. call to_paletted() with the quantization options you want, in your case max_colors => 16
  2. call write()

For example

my $pal = $source->to_paletted ( max_colors => 16, translate => "errdiff", ) or die $source->errstr; $pal->write(file => "foo.png") or die $pal->errstr;

That said, unless your images start with a small number of colours (non-photographic, no blends, little anti-aliasing) the results are going to be fairly ugly. You should test with some representative source images.
