Palette List

Submit | Submission Queue | API

The Lospec Palette List is a database of palettes for pixel art. We include both palettes that originate from old hardware that could only display a few colors, as well as palettes created by pixel artists specifically for making art. All palettes can be downloaded and imported into your pixelling software of choice (learn how). You can also try a our palette of the day or a random palette.

8-Bit RGBM 

Created by A.J. Otero

This is essentially the 9-bit RGB palette, but reduced from 512 to 256 colors by combining the least significant red and blue bits, resulting in a 3-bit green channel, 2-bit red and blue channels, and a 1-bit Magenta channel, so RGBM stands for red-green-blue-magenta.  Unlike the similar Uzebox palette, this one provides pure grays.  P.S., I entered all of the color numbers manually, which took a while, so I hope there aren't any errors!

EqualRGB 

Created by A.J. Otero

So here I've tried to reduce the redundancy in the 3-bit RGB palette by making each of the color channels have approximately the same effect on a colors luminance, instead of having green being disproportionately bright and blue disproportionately dark.

4-Bit RGB 

Submitted by A.J. Otero

1 red bit, 2 green bits, 1 blue bit.  Similar in concept to the Uzebox palette, which also uses bit combinations for the RGB color channels, in that case adding up to 8 bits in total, rather than 4.
