Finding the right color palette for a website design can be challenging. Often the client’s logo will dictate the dominant colors, or you might be basing the design on a photo from which you can sample colors. When I’m struggling with finding the combination that makes it all come together, I turn to some great online color resources – these are my favorites:
Adobe’s Kuler – http://kuler.adobe.com/ Explore palettes, search by tags, save your favorite themes, and create your own to share with other designers. View this tutorial video from AdobeTV to learn more about Kuler. I especially like having the ability to create a theme from a photo.
