    Okay, color me stupid (a little joke there...very little) but I never knew such things existed! These are amazingly useful!

    As a photoshop user, I could see loading a scheme, then playing with tints & hues (+brightness/contrast, etc.) on the entire scheme at once' this would to keep the color ratios in line, yet offer a wide range of actual color choices!

    Thanks, fellas! Great finds!

    There is also Colorjack here - one of the best of the lot. I'm making this thread a sticky as these tools might prove to be very useful to the occasional visitor who may not be aware of it and to mappers in general.

    ON a similar note, does anyone know of a reference for indexed gradients for terrain elevation mapping?

    I have a few (tropical, desert, generic, Mediterranean) and will upload them, but was looking for a reference....

    And another one:
    http://www.degraeve.com/color-palette/

    This one is different as it will take any image on the web and produces one dull palette and one vibrant palette that match the colors in the image provided.

    For example using the current featured map:

    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.
