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.

Color Graphics Adapter 

CGA was a graphics card released in 1981 for the IBM PC. The standard mode uses one of two 4-color palettes (each with a low-intensity and high-intensity mode), but a hack allows use of all 16. #cga

Windows 95 - 256 colours 

Submitted by Chris Moes

This palette was originally created by Mathew Eis and posted to his site. It's a reconstruction of windows 95's 8-bit 256 color palette.

Had trouble getting it working so uploading it here to convert, as well as share with other people looking for it (took me a bit of searching to find)

This is the new default color scheme used in the Windows Console starting in Windows 10 build 16257, first introduced here. It is designed to emulate the old IBM / DOS defaults while being significantly more readable on modern LCD screens.
