I was looking to find a nice color scheme for a site the other day and a quick search of the web brought back a number of useful online tools. I thought I’d make a list of them (in no particular order), more for my own benefit really.
As a side note, it would seem that the web-safe color palette has finally gone the way of the dinosaur. I don’t think there are many designers (any?) out there who are concerned about this once-significant limitation.
Each of these apps has slightly different slant on picking colors and color schemes, and some are definitely better than others:
- Slayeroffice color palette tool
- Color Schemer
- Color Cop (Win) is not an online tool but a free utility to pick a color from anything on your screen. It is extremely useful and a very worthwhile download.
