Default Create 8-Bit Style Graphics with Authentic NES, Gameboy, and Sega Colors





While making any image into an 8-Bit style graphic can be a lot of fun, it’s surprisingly easy to go the extra mile and use authentic palettes of popular retro gaming systems like the Gameboy, NES, or Sega Master system.
All you have to do is fire up nearly any version of Photoshop and download a few files to make the process quick and easy. Keep reading.






My first How-to on creating 8-Bit graphics is still available, and shows the process in greater depth

You can Check it out here;

Create Cool 8-Bit Style Pixel Art from Ordinary Images


If you still remember the steps from before, you’ll be okay without rereading it and just grabbing a few images you find interesting. Again, iconic images with good contrast can be very helpful to creating a better final product.





Once you have your image, simply head to Image > Mode > Indexed Color as before. Instead of using any of the other options on the “Palette” pulldown menu, we want to use “Custom.”





This loads up the Color Table for your image. It has generated one automatically, but we have no interest in that right now. Click the “Load…” button.





You’ll get a browser window looking for a color table file. I’ve created;

three color tables for readers to experiment with

so download them and plug them in at this step. They’re available in a

ZIP package.

My favorite is the “Gameboy” palette.





The “Gameboy” color table has loaded up nicely. Hit OK to begin rendering your image in glorious shades of green.





I’ve been setting my Dither amount lower lately, and also using “Preserve Exact Colors.” Experiment with your settings to find your favorites, or simply use the ones shown here.





We’re off to a great start with Beethoven.





Again, shrink your file to a small size.





And, we have an excellent representation using Gameboy-style colors.





Yoga Fire! Here’s a nice example of the NES color palette.





The Sega Master system palette creates a nice image out of the “Great Wave off Kanagawa.”







Download the color tables if you haven’t already.


If you appreciate all the work that went into this thread please help us to pay the bills to keep this site up and running
