The Hex Color Scheme Generator is a great tool to use if you want to create a beautiful and logical color scheme. It acts as an “advisor” for colors. You simply tell it which colors you’d like to use, and the app will generate the best results that match.
Pictaculous lets you upload your image and analyze its colors. This is ideal for the designer who creates several graphics at a time and would like to distinguish the looks without having to manually choose the best combining colors every time.
Color Combinations and Color Schemes
This website gives you the option to generate limitless color combinations and schemes. If you already know at least one of the colors you plan on using, this site will take care of the rest. This is good for testing out colors in your code when you’re not sure what they are. I personally use this app on a regular basis.

Color Palette Software
This is an advanced color palette tool that lets you create beautiful color schemes and custom themes. To begin working with colors you’ll have a scratch pad at your disposal. Before you begin using this app, make sure you try the scratch pad, it’s a feature that allows you to store all of the colors you’re working with for later use. You’ll also have a photo tool to extract colors, and an advanced color picker as well as a color theory wheel to give you the right type of inspiration.
ColorExplorer takes working with digital colors to the next level. You can get right down to work with a colorful toolbox that lets you quickly and easily create, manage, and explore several color palettes.
