Need help with generating colour schemes?

at colorhunter you can upload an image (perhaps one of your chosen artist’s works)
and it will automatically generate a scheme for you based upon that image and CMYK colour coding
you can plug the nominated colours into into photoshop and generate colour “chits” for use in your design..

at design seeds you can adjust the colour selectors and it will automatically give you a range of 4 other colours to form a colour scheme. fun

the color-calculator will provide you with secondary, monochromatic, tertiary and other colour options based upon your selection of a single colour.


go to dulux and use their many  interactive colour pages to create schemes


in case you lost them handouts that refer to this page are here and here
