One of the tasks of a website designer (or builder, as the case may be) is choosing the colors for a website – colors for the background, text, links, headings, etc. So what do you do if, like me, you don’t have a natural gift for choosing color schemes? Fortunately there are some free resources available on the web that can help someone like me in making color decisions, and two that I have used are Kuler and Color Scheme Designer.
This short article isn’t intended to be a review per se of these two tools, but I’ve written it to make others aware of the resources that are available for tasks such as this.
I’ve had more time in the saddle with Kuler, and it has been a good tool. It’s provided courtesy of Adobe and it works well. You can read more about Kuler here on Adobe’s website, with a description of Kuler and a list of its features.
Color Scheme Designer
I recently found Color Scheme Designer, and it has some significant features. It’s provided courtesy of Petr Stanicek, a webdesigner from the Czech Republic. Time will tell, but it may be the color tool I turn to more than Kuler. We’ll see.
