 Kuler

This is one of the best tools to create color schemes. It offers us an infinity of predefined combinations and we can also create our own schemes using a really intuitive and easy-to-use interface. To download the themes, it’s necessary to subscribe with an email account. The most interesting point is the keyword search option (you can see “New York” combinations at the following image).

 Paletton

A simple interface to create web color schemes that offers an essential tool to ensure the accessibility of our website: a simulation of the color combination vision to people with impaired vision. We don’t need to sign in to download our palette!

 Web Colour Data

This tool allows us to extract the color combination of an existing website simply introducing the url. If we like a website, we can get inspiration from its color scheme in order to create our own palette. Check out the color of MASmedios website here ;D
