I arranged vintage color palettes for the use with modern computers. Sources were mainly the genius articles on wikipedia: [1] [2] [3]. There you can also find technical details on how the palettes could be used, for example how many colors could be used at a time.

To simplify the use of the palettes in modern environments, I added transparency, if enough space (palette <256 colors) was available.

To download all the palettes as PNG and ACT (Adobe Color Table for Photoshop) files, simply click on one of the palettes.
