The short answer is that for images, the foregroundColor (aka 
firstColor), backgroundColor (aka secondColor), and the other six 
colors aren't especially useful and should probably be ignored. (They 
are the first eight colors in the image's color palette, and may very 
well not be used *in* the image to begin with.)
