Of course, artists would point out that color schemes have more to do with inspiration than algebra. But as a starting point for those of us who are Color Uncoordinated, it's a great idea generator.

Agreed Frank. Funnily enough after purchasing colour schemer - I've decided I don't like the schemes it comes up with and have reverted back to how I always did it. Picking em myself.

We are going to use it to repaint and redecorate the house.
Just imagine what happens down at the paint shop.
Can we please have a can of "FFECDF" and two cans of "A9998D" ?
A great site indeed.

I would use the steel dolphin and get a big handful of their colour chart samples and match them on screen
still think that virtual decorating site would be a cool idea
heres the other post

And the paint shop's explanation that the RGB color wheel applies to light, whereas RYB (red, yellow, blue) applies to "stuff"
Okay, so what are the three primary colors?
a. red, yellow, blue
b. magenta, yellow, cyan
c. red, green, blue

RGB is the color wheel for light (e.g., that big lightbulb in your monitor).
RYB is for matter; if you're decorating your livingroom, use this one.
CMYK is for print (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black).
That's my understanding of it, and why if you're using a RYB color wheel for the Web, things can come out less than harmonious.

Not all of us have a nice collection of nature pictures to look over to pick nice colour schemes, so, I thought it was cool that there are places we can use to find them.
Flickr is a site that personally, I don't think I'd contribute to, just not really my thing. But in terms of looking at some of the stuff on there, wow is it great. Want some flower pictures, or perhaps some sunsets, maybe even clouds. There's so many people adding such a wide range of pictures on there, you can probably find just about everything.
Possibly the collest thing about it though, is that they've now linked it up with the Creative Commons License. Those people who have protect their work with a Creative Commons license allow different types of use of that work. Some just require attribution, some for non-commericial use only for example.
Which is really really cool. Suddenly, you have hundreds, probably thousands of images that you can probably quite easily use, either verbatim, or as a derivative for a web site (or anything else) as long as you give proper attribution, or whatever is required.
Some pictures of the sky that you can either use in full, or use a derivative of, on a commercial or non-commercial site, as long as you say where it came from.

If you want to see a chart of color schemes I've already matched you can see them here: Picking A Color Scheme This page also goes over a bunch of tips for how to use color on the web. Let me know what you think. A bunch of other resources for web designers/developers are available on that site under "trendtorials" and "generators". I hope the info is useful.
