    Color schemer tool is nice, added it to my tool box.

    Two other colors tools (not as good or interactive as the one above) that I have in my toolbox:

    http://www.ficml.org/jemimap/style/color/wheel.html

    I happen to like Behr Paints site when it comes to color coordination ideas, even thought the tones they display are not "web safe". With the tool once you pick a color and designate is as a primary or secondary the tool displays six color pallets that would work.
    Excellent when talking with a client about a color scheme for a site.

    This is an excellent tool. I've been using it for the past couple years and it's still great!

    I find just browsing this site is great help: http://www.colorschemer.com/schemes/index.php
    There's a reason army's wear uniforms even though it makes them easier to spot. Sometimes that's what you want. Uniforms suggest organization, power, and numbers. These, in turn, inspire fear. And, as any good operative knows, there is no more effective weapon than fear.

    Thanks Haiko!

    Another good one is http://www.colorcombos.com.

    Their Combo Tester and Combo Library are handy, as is the "grab website colors" tool.
    (abestweb.com has 38 colors!)

    The template maker (http://www.colorcombos.com/templatemaker.html) is great, too.

    Great info here at abestweb.com ... as always!

    I just checked this out. This is a great tip. I don't do design work, but this is definitely handy to have. Thanks everyone.

    I like this little Firefox extension. Sometimes i see a color or color combination I like and this makes it very easy to see what it is.
