the following images were created so the complete colour palette of various colour depths could be viewed.
some graphics programs do not show all colours in their 2d palettes. a 3d cube palette would seem better, since there are 3 variables: red, green & blue.
also included are some 32bit graphics. the extra byte does not add to the red, green & blue values, rather it adds an alpha/transparency/opacity property which is used mainly with layered content.
the images are not shown here due to rending problems some browsers/systems may encounter. download and view with a standalone image viewer/editor.
a few other images are also included, created at the same time. the more curious maybe interested in the lookcloser.gif file, no really ;-)
