Palette Generator — “Automagically create a harmonious color palette from a photograph”
Choosing a palette of colors for your website or for a particular web project is a difficult task for many of us, but here’s something that can really help. Just select a photograph from your Flickr account, your PC, or any webpage, click on Create, and this tool will present a matching palette of colors, with numbered color swatches and a simple CSS sample.
This can be especially useful if you’re trying to match a photograph that you plan to use as the header for a file, but it’s also helpful if you’re trying to find a general color scheme and just need a place to start — sometimes it’s easier to start from a photograph that just feels right.
This is just one of a number of great tools from fd’s Flickr Toys.
