ColorBlender is a free online color-matching tool, and is perfect for both Graphic and Website Designers. Best yet, the tool is very easy to use and will actually save you time in your design efforts.

ColorBlend is structured with 6 horizontal color palettes (boxes) in which the first color palette can be manually tweaked to get a starter color (your main/dominate color). Entering a color in the first palette will automatically generate 5 additional color suggestions (in the other 5 boxes) which will perfectly compliment the original. Users can then use these color options to build an esthetically pleasing color scheme.

My Thoughts

Obviously the idea behind this tool is to save time. Using this tool, designers will no longer need to spend time developing an appropriate color scheme for each project, as the tool will suggest which colors work best when a certain color option is entered. ColorBlend is also the perfect tool for those that are "design and color coordinated impaired".

Furthermore, my favorite part of this tool is that after a user finds the perfect blend of colors, they can export their scheme using Photoshop Color Table (.ACT), Illustrator Colors (.EPS), and by email. There is even an option in which users can easily save/load color schemes allowing users to easily experiment and compare several of the color schemes they've already created.

Overall, I absolutely love this tool, and recommend it for graphic and website designers.
