Colors Come to Life in 3D with ColoRotate

Posted · Category: Color Schemes, License Free

Like taste and smell, color is a sense that is processed by our brains in multiple dimensions. Yet traditional methods of choosing colors on computers are limited to obscure sliders and flattened two-dimensional viewers. With ColoRotate, you can work with colors in 3D, in real time, and in a way that matches how our minds process color.

ColoRotate has an intuitive interface that eliminates the need to memorize or jot down color combinations or numbers. Indeed, you can traverse across an open three-dimensional color space and choose (or design) the color palette that fits your needs.

Color Scheme Designer Version 3.0

Posted · Category: Color Schemes

While designing web pages, computer applications, or house interiors, we need to find good color scheme – set of colors producing the best impression. For every tint there are colors which it can coexist with, and which it can’t. Some combinations are uncomfortable, or disturbing – while others are pleasant.

Experienced designers choose colors intuitively, many people can smell which colors go together well and which don’t. However, finding the good combination of colors may be sometimes long and gruelling work. The color theory makes the work easier. Color Scheme Designer will find set of colors you can start with, and it may facilitate your looking for the optimal color palette.

Color Scheme Designer generates color schemes of several types. Every scheme is based on one (base) color, which is supplemented with additional colors making together the best optical imperssion – using one of the authentic algorithms.

Color Scheme Designer V3 has launched recently with A brand new interface, as well as the engine, all rewritten from the scratch. Rapidly increased precision and color space conversions, better preview, enhanced scheme creation system, unique scheme IDs and permanent URL of the scheme.

Photoshop-Like Javascript Color Picker

Posted · Category: Color Schemes, License Free

There are tons of color pickers out there. The main difference in Photoshop-Like Javascript Color Picker is that it has all 6 picking options (H,S,V,R,G,B) not just Hue. To create the color mixing, the larger map is made of two layers and the vertical slider has four layers (two are used for H, S, or B; four layers for R, G, or B). Some others pickers use this method for a hue map, but don’t include the other maps (S,V,R,G,B).The JavaScript is made up of some color methods, a slider control, a handler for input, and the ColorPicker object to put it all together.


Requirements: IE5.5, IE6, IE7, FF2, Opera 9, Safari 2
