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.
can't javascript (or maybe PHP) do this?

I have noticed people having trouble with color schemes.Check out http://kuler.adobe.com/ If you look at the highest rated or most popular schemes you should get a better grip on what colors go with eachother.Play around on it, it's pretty cool.<<edited thread title>>
This is an excellent resource. However, I am more concerned with the essential consideration of where those colors are placed.

This is awesome! I am a NTID I spend loads of time trying to find the right colors and then deciding they clash or I don't like them.Thanks for putting this up and pinning it.

I normally use Kuler and colourlovers.com to find color palettes, if I'm having trouble finding the right palette. If I already have a color that I want to work with but need good analogous, monochromatic, or complementary colors, I tend to use colorschemedesigner.com. Additionally: I'm probably going to end of using the below website at some point, so thanks for that. :good:

Or the all-time baddest a**-esthttp://www.degraeve.com/color-palette/
A contrast to that website, but almost equally as useful is this website: http://labs.ideeinc.com/multicolr/#I use this at times, and it proves time and again to be of use and slightly entertaining.
