Automated Color-Scheme Finder!

Ever wanted an easier way to come up with a color scheme for your website but didnt want to do all the work yourself?

...well theres still hope for you!

http://www.colorblender.com/

You use the slider bars to make a set of matching colors, or the "Direct Edit" option allows you to easily choose your own! I found this tool to be quite usefull when coming up with some of my sites in the past, and didnt want to see it forgotten. Originally it was ment for use in painting interriors of homes, it's become a little known secret in the website creator's arsenal!

Wow... that is actually really useful. Need to figure out the algorithms behind that and do it as a Gimp plugin.

Just saw this one. Seems a bit nifty as well, in that it's easier to just adjust saturation/brightness without changing hue.
