I’ve recently rediscovered kuler online- an AWESOME Adobe site where you can load your own color palates that (because it’s an adobe site) are accessible from Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign. How is this helpful? … The possibilities are endless. You can create personalized palettes from pictures- so- say you’re planning on making a beautiful necklace and you’re inspired by the colors in a flower- you can load a picture of the dress and work from the photo! Same goes from planning color schemes/palates. Here’s a video that shows a more detailed explaination of how to use it:
Good luck with creating, using, and becoming inspired on kuler! It’s also fun to browse around other color schemes users have made. So far, my favorites are “Victorian Lacier,” “Raygun Gothic” and “Cosmic Moss.” …It’s also fun to name your colors! Let me know if you’ve made any of your own!
