Adobe Kuler. A powerful online colour tool

Creating great colour schemes from scratch can be difficult. Adobe’s Kuler website is provides a variety of methods to assist with this. Start by searching the massive and ever expanding user submitted database by keyword. For example, if looking for a nature inspired colour scheme type “forest” into the search engine to be presented with almost 2000 pre-made swatch groups. Alternatively upload a photo from your computer or enter a URL and Kuler will generate a range of colour schemes automatically. Kuler is also a great way to work with (and learn) colour theory rules.¬†Signing in with your Adobe account allows you to save your theme, upload it to the online community and download a Swatch Exchange file to import into your Adobe programs or send on to others.
