    Info

    Semi-related link:

    This Web site will convert hexidecimal numbers to decimal numbers (and visa-versa):

    http://www.statman.info/conversions/hexadecimal.html

    Some programs (like Fireworks) displays RGB (red, green and blue) numbers in hexidecimal (base 16), not decimal. Campaign Cartographer 3 requires decimal (our "normal" base 10 number system) numbers in the RGB fields in color definitions. Sometimes I like to make custom color palettes for maps in CC3 based on something I've seen elsewhere. I open the file in Fireworks, use the eyedropper tool to select the color(s) I like, and copy down the hexidecimal RGB numbers corresponding to that color. Then I convert them on the Web site above to decimal and enter those in CC3.

    If anyone would like to learn more about creating their own custom color palettes in CC3, see these Help topics (search for them in the Index view):

    • Understanding Colors in CC3
    • custom palette


    Help is available for CC3 both in the program on the Help menu and online:

    Adobe's Kuler site is nice as well.

    This is worth a bump for those that don't see it via the tips thread.

    Info

    Someone asked for color tutorials, and I came across this web page, provided by Pantone:

    http://www.pantone.com/pages/pantone/pantone.aspx?ca=29

    It's not a color scheme generator, but it's germane to the topic at hand.

    If you sign up for the MyPantone feature, you can access some articles from Before & After Magazine that are useful. The one entitled "Our Color Wheel" is particularly good. I'm attaching the wheel to this message, as it is freely available from their website and very clearly branded. The article itself requires either a login at MyPantone or 3 credits at iStockPhoto.com.

    colorfilter.net also has a sweet little tutorial for turning pictures into color swatches in PS. I don't know GIMP, will it work there, too?

    If you're a Abobe product (Photoshop /Illustrator ) user it's worth checking out Adobe Exchange

    These two Actions are really handy and can help out a lot:

    Color Wheel CS2



    This works for CS2 and higher. It'll create a colour wheel based on the one you have picked already.

    Color Schemers



    "Select 1 source color in your foreground, run the action(s) and end up with traditional color combinations that work well together and can be used for sampling in your design projects. Not sure if this will work on MAC? But it was tested on WIN PS v.7 & CS"

    This is brilliant and really helps out.

    Link Color Scheme Designer

    Not sure if this has been posted before or not.

    Stumbled across this (http://colorschemedesigner.com) today when I was doing some surfing. It's got some neat options, including exporting both GIMP (.GPL) and Photoshop (.ACO) palette files.
