Not a very decorative/ graphical person, I can say that. It may be my lack of practice, or that I just don't have the talent in me. I guess that's what group projects (sourcefourge.net and such) is good for.

Yup. I'm of the non-talented-in-design (NTID... huh... sounds kind'a cool :) ) type too.I really like the SiteProCentral tool. Imagine if any site allowed you to customize it based on preferences, scpecified with a color chooser like this one. It would be so awesome. If only that guy had a Web Service for this. I mean, image the situation: your visitor enters a color code (or name, which is in turn translated to a code) and your application sends that request to the WS. The WS returns the color pallete, which your application then uses as constants to use with the site's colors. Already sounds exciting to me. Now if only I or anyone else could pull this off.

That would be cool, and I like SiteProCentral the best as well. A lot of options.

I really liked http://www.colourlovers.com.. I also really liked the programming of the site.
Ditto. It's the only such site I've come across before, since I don't really do a lot of things like that. But I've always liked it.

Thanks for the link, but I am not able to find a highest rated section, all I can see is the most recent; Is there a highest rated section or most used templates?
Not really for finding a color scheme, but cool and useful none-the-less:http://chir.ag/phernalia/name-that-color/:)

i recommend PageTutor.com's color picker - simple and it even generates the code for you (HTML and CSS)

Thats cool, but I like at most 3 colors, but I love adding gradients.
