We present here the digital aperture photometry for 28 LMC clusters whose ages are between 5 Myr and 12 Gyr. This photometry is based on our imaging observations in JHK and contains integrated magnitudes and colors as a function of aperture radius. In contrast to optical colors, our near-infrared colors do not show any strong dependence on cluster ages.

Key words: galaxies: photometry -- galaxies: Magellanic Clouds -- galaxies: star clusters -- infrared: stars
