The BEST free colour tools & sites online

Posted on

Colour

Colour whether you like it or not, is one of the most important parts of any design or artwork. It has the potential to make or break your work and this is why I have compiled a list of the best colour tools online. You can use these sites to help you out as they implement colour schemes for you, provide resources and give you inspiration.

:-D My favourites and the ones I use regularly have a smiley next to it.

The Ultimate Colour Resource

:-D Colour Lovers – The ultimate resource in my opinion for colour in general. It is great for choosing a colour scheme and the site also monitors trends and gives power to its users. You can submit news, read articles & interviews and compare colour palettes and add comments. It’s great!

Choosing a colour scheme / palette

KrazyDad – Experimental Colour Picker

Etsy.com – A creative and fun way of choosing a colour

:-D Color Blender A free online colour matching system including palettes. You can choose one colour and then it suggest a cool blend for you.

Ficml.org Colour Wheel – An addictive and very colourful way of choosing a colour scheme.

Colour Schemer – This one isn’t actually free but definitely worth mentioning. It is a small program that implements colour schemes for you. I havn’t actually tried it myself but the screen shots look great.

:-D Photo Colour Matcher – This is quite a handy tool as it lets you have a picture and then it matches that picture to get a colour palette. Great for brochures or things that have to match around a central image.

Colour Matching Sphere – Another cool way to choose a colour scheme

Colour Inspiration

Stock Photographs – Use Flickr or iStockPhoto to get some colour inspiration. Try searching for things related to the piece of work you are working on.

:-D UrbanCowboy and 57Even – These are two of my favourite artists who use great colour schemes in their work.

Other Tools
