Color Palette Generators

Color Palette GeneratorsThere are so many color palette generators out there right now, I thought I’d round some of them up for you for a quick overview. I was going to rate them, but really, go with what works best for you. If you know some other good ones, feel free to post them!

Posted in quasi-alphabetical order:

  • 4096 Color Wheel. Web-safe and web-smart color palettes.
  • Accessibility Color Wheel: Helps determing which color contrasts work best for legibilty. Based on the above.
  • ChromoWeb: Color harmony from the 216 color web palette.
  • ColorBlender.com: Standard palette picker, can save palettes for later use.
  • Colorcell: “Colorcell wants to find the most popular color combinations.”
  • ColorCombos: Palette picker with combination directory.
  • COLOURlovers: Color-based community. Give colors and palettes names, rate them, share them. save them for later. My favorite!
  • ColorMatch Redux: Nice and compact, with sliders.
  • Color Palette Generator: Lets you provide a photo from which a palette is generated.
  • Color Scheme Chooser: Feels a bit like an application, if that’s your thing.
  • Color Schemes Generator 2: Uses a chromatic wheel, generates links to your palettes.
  • Color Schemer: I like to use this one a lot, lets you “wander” by clicking colors for new combinations based on them.
  • ColorWhore: “A directory of nice colors”. Nice concept, goes by “greys, reds, etc.”
  • colr.org: Playful approach, lets you provide a photo.
