Website Design Color Schemes

Sometimes I use a photograph to pick colors for my website designs. My favorite Color Scheme tools are:

  • Adobe Color - Create color schemes with the color wheel or browse thousands of color combinations from the Color community. Formerly known as Kuler.
  • Peletton.com - A designer tool for creating color combinations that work together well. Formerly known as Color Scheme Designer. Use the color wheel to create great color palettes.
  • Colour Lovers - COLOURlovers is a creative community where people from around the world create and share colors, palettes and patterns, discuss the latest trends and explore colorful articles.. All in the spirit of love

 

I was about to list the best color design scheme tools, when I came across this excellent list from Design Shack.

I agree with the author, Joshua Johnson - "A website’s color scheme helps shape its identity and therefore should not be carelessly thrown together."

Joshua has performed a cursory search which revealed that most free color tools available on the web are extremely basic and simply mimic everything else out there. Click on the link to Design Shack below to see a list of online tools that stand out in either design, usability or features.
