Kuler by Adobe = Amazing Color Tool

Posted on: November 4, 2010

I cannot tell you how excited I am by this amazing color tool called Kuler that Adobe has created. A student brought it to my attention and I only wish I had heard about it sooner! If you are a student that is struggling with color theory and what is the difference between a monochromatic and an analogous color scheme then this is the tool for you! The site allows you to create color schemes a variety of ways. You can create it completely on your own or you can select a hue (color) and then click complimentary, triad, analogous! Check out the screen shot below:

I hope that you all take the time to view this tool and please remember to view it only as a tool. It is not a designer and you should not rely on it soley as a designer to do your work for you but it can certainly help to open your eyes to some color options you may not have thought of! Enjoy and let me know what you all think!

Just for fun here is another screen shot depicting a complementary color scheme:
