useful online color tools


It’s incredible, a lot of online color tools are often better than local free software I’ve seen. Depending on what you need to do you can be quite sure to find what you need online. Each time I needed I searched and tried some of the online tools and I noticed that it’s only when I’m really using them that I find out how useful they are.

If you’re tackling some graphic design project or maybe even your wall decor, getting color hints from ready made color templates from professional designers can be useful. Below are 10 of the better sites to help you out on your design challenge.

These are the ones I found myself using the most:

  • ColorSynth Axis: This is amazing, it’s the most advanced color shemer I’ve seen. It’s worth going though the tutorial.
  • Slayer Office’s color palette blender: This is the one I use most, it’s simple but amply enough for common use.
  • ColorMatch Redux: Because it can export to .ACT, .AI and text. I use all 3 of them.


COLOURlovers this is pretty close to color mecca. This post should actually be filed as a Timewaster because you can spend hours checking out the various palettes and patterns and rolling your own. The site is full of features such as create your own palette from a URL you’re inspired by, join groups devoted to colors (srsly), shore up on the latest color trends, contribute your own content and vote on others.

color combo

ColorCombos – nice color palettes to choose from. If there’s a particular website whose colors you want to snag, check out their “Grab Website Colors” engine. You just input the URL of the site you’re reviewing and ColorCombos extracts the palette for you.

color explorer

ColorExplorer – another site that’s feature rich and full of color goodies. Color import from images, palette export to most programs, convert any number of colors into a matching palette, 1 click palette filters and adjustments, plus no requirement for site registration.


ColorJack – very nice color site featuring several apps such as Color Sphere which allows you to choose the right color scheme supporting 18 formulas and 9 color blindness simulations. There’s also Color Galaxy, an online color visualizer with colors from 27 libraries including everyone’s favorite forever and ever, Crayola.


Kuler – not surprisingly, Adobe has a fetching web app to help you generate color schemes and if you have Adobe’s Creative Suite 4, Kuler is built in. Kuler has great tools such as color extractor from an image, theme creation from 1 to several colors, as well as a community you can join and give and receive comments on yours and other’s creations.

color scheme generator

Color Scheme Generator – your basic color tool, nothing fancy. Nice online tool to generate color schemes and palettes to create good-looking and well balanced and harmonic web pages.

Color Hunter – allows you to create and find color palettes from photographs.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface.
