The DrawGraphics palette has all the colors on it. They are roughly arranged
into similar color groups and can be pasted into a notebook. There are also
buttons to delete all graphics cells, mix colors and paste in the commands
for selecting, closing and starting an animation from a set of animation
frame cells.

somebody else might find this snippet of code useful. it creates a
four page color swatch of all colors available in mathematica (ie.


swatch[i_] :=
       Graphics[{ToExpression[AllColors[[i]]], Rectangle[{0, 0}, {1,
	AspectRatio -> 1, PlotLabel -> AllColors[[i]]];

w = 600;

Show[GraphicsArray[Table[swatch[6i + j], {i, 0, 7}, {j, 1,
       6}]], ImageSize -> w];
Show[GraphicsArray[Table[swatch[6i + j], {i, 8, 15}, {j, 1,
6}]], ImageSize -> w];
Show[GraphicsArray[Table[swatch[6i + j], {i, 16, 13}, {j,
         1, 6}]], ImageSize -> w];
Show[GraphicsArray[Table[swatch[6i + j], {i, 24, 29}, {j,
1, 6}]], ImageSize -> w];
