Please explain me, is there a easy way to convert random image from internet to any OXC palette?

I use GIMP to edit the image and then use GrafX2 (free) to convert and fix palette issues. Here's a description of how to use it: https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,3709.msg46970.html#msg46970

One morequestion: does anyone know how to convert TFTD PCK-files into images? Any pckview or XCview i've looked can not do it.
Or maybe someone have these sprites converted allready?  Thanks.

There is a very good extracting tool made by Humax. It's here: https://www.openxcom.com/mod/xcom-image-extractor

Nope. Specifically, i search for aqua-plastic armor tactical spritesheet. Thinked, they must be in UNITS folder. Images in any other folders opens normally, but not this.

This one? I just extracted it from my TftD files using Falko's tool, it certainly works.

Glad it was the right one. I did:

1 - go to: https://falkooxc2.pythonanywhere.com/
2 - in tools, select "XCom Converter"
3 - upload my "TDXCOM_1.PCK" and "TDXCOM_1.TAB"
4 - select tftd-depth zero as the palette
5 - click convert
6 - ?!? (ie Falko's magic)
7 - profit! :D
