Exporting the BeOS 8-bit palette

This tip is valid for: Both BeOS and Haiku

If you need to import the 8-bit BeOS palette (aka Color Lookup Table, or CLUT) into Photoshop or another imaging application on another operating system, try this:

1) Use the Screen preferences application to change your resolution to 8-bit. BeOS’ 8-bit palette will appear as a grid.

2) Press PrintScreen to create a screenshot in your home directory.

3) Move the resulting TARGA file into your favourite paint program and tell it to grab a palette from the image.
