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.

Mac Paint 

Created by Polyducks

Sampled from a genuine Apple Macintosh CRT in 2021, it uses the light blue and faded black to carry 1bit art in the closest you can get to looking at an Apple Macintosh screen's colours without sitting in front of one. Take note that the colours are sampled from a daylight photograph of actual hardware then manually adjusted to best match the image, and is thus a representation of how the art displays as opposed to how it's recorded in software (which definitely would've been true black or white). Anyone has permission to use this palette for any purpose.

This palette is a simple 13 color palette. All the colors are more desaturated and work well together. It's my favorite palette I've made! I'm going to use it for a game!

Soft Boiled 

Created by まるき

It’s 4:37 a.m. You’ve just woke up and the sun hasn’t even made an intention of rising. Going back to bed is impossible. You feel your stomach complaining, announcing a dooming morning starvation, but the drowsiness is such you can barely move. You look for the easiest thing to cook. You make soft-boiled eggs. Jokes apart, this 3 color palette is meant to be simple and fulfilling, just like eggs. Whatever you are not able to do with it, rely on negative spaces and context assumption to fill in the blanks.
