Find A Web Color Palette – Quick, Easy, and Free

Category : Cool Web Programs, Photoshop

I found a wicked easy to use color palette generator at http://www.colorcombos.com. Besides being free it also has a few features that I like that set it apart from the plethora of other color generator sites I found before getting to this one.

  1. You can type almost any color you want into the box to search their archive or palettes. If that’s not easy enough you can click any of the colors on the right to get a pretty diverse list of related colors. That’s pretty simple.
  2. You can enter a website url and scrape the color palette from another site. This includes the colors designated in the css files.
  3. Once you have selected the color palette you can click the color to be brought a new page to tweak the hex colors and adjust the position inside the palette.
  4. After selecting a color palette you can sue a drop down to find complementary colors, and create those handy little color palette images, like this one:

And did I mention this site is free? Love it…
