And now for something super helpful! Do you ever find yourself wondering “what IS that gorgeous color?!?” Or maybe you wish to generate an entire palette from a photograph? Check this out:
Upload a photograph from your computer, Flickr, or Facebook account.
Big Huge Labs generates a pretty palette from your image. Not only do you get the hexadecimal numbers of the colors, but you can also generate an .ase file, which is a swatch palette that can be imported into Photoshop. The Color Palette Generator even gives your hues fun and creative names!
This and applications like it offer a huge number of possibilities for many applications…. home decorating, graphic design, painting or other artwork… I’ve found many ways to apply them to my photography.
