Continuing the series on color palettes, this week’s post is about color palette generators.
Color Palette Generators
There are different types of color palette generators out there depending on what you’re looking for.
Random Color Palette Generator
This is perfect if you don’t know what you’re looking for or maybe just want to challenge yourself. The image above came from Coolors.co. Basically, you hit the space bar to continue generating random color palettes. You can also lock in one or more colors and continue getting random palettes based on those colors. It also let’s you download the palette.
You Pick the Starting Color
This type of palette generator, like the one illustrated from Adobe Color CC, let’s you pick the starting color from a color wheel and the type of color scheme you want and creates a color palette. You do need to create an Abobe ID to be able to save the palettes however.
Color Palette from Image
This type let’s you input the URL of an image or upload an image, depending on the site. The above came from DeGraeve.com Color Palette Generator. I didn’t find a save option on this particular site, but I like that it shows both a muted and vibrant palette based on the photo.
While I only showed one example of each of the different types, there are tons of online color palette generators or apps that you can download to your smartphone or tablet that are just a google search away.
Please feel free to share your favorite color palette generator links in the comments.
