This color periodic table is the updated version of the original color periodic table wallpaper made for this site.
The 2015 version of this HD table has the same color scheme as the original table along with corrected atomic weights and the minor correction of the group 1 heading.
This 1920×1080 color periodic table works great as a widescreen device wallpaper with each element’s atomic number, symbol, name and atomic mass. It readily resizes to adapt to other screen or paper sizes.
If you’d like to print up a copy, feel free to print the image files or else a PDF of this table is available for download.
For people who prefer darker wallpapers, the next periodic table has the same colored tiles on a black background. The element facts are exactly the same.
For a little variety, I have included two other versions of this periodic table wallpaper. The first is a negative version of the original table. Same information, just reversed color scheme. It turned out kind of neat.
The second variation changed the gradients used in the individual tiles to slightly posterized bands of color for an interesting effect. This one prints up very nicely!
Download your favorite by clicking on the image you prefer. If you’d like to have the original, I’ve got that for you as well.
