Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. 8-bit color graphics is a method of storing image information in a computer's memory or in an image file, such that each pixel is represented by one 8-bit byte. The maximum number of colors that can be displayed at any one time is 256. There are two forms of 8-bit color graphics. The most common uses a separate palette of 256 colors, where each of the 256 entries in the palette map to given red, green, and blue values. In most color maps, each color is usually chosen from a palette of 16,777,216 colors.
