A few months ago I noticed a tweet from PicMonkey about color palettes.

I’ve always noticed the color picker when I would create collages on PicMonkey, but it never occurred to me to use it as a color guide until I read the article. Honestly, this is a brilliant idea and a great resource to use when I work on websites for clients who are unsure about the color scheme they want to use for their new website.

Once you get started the color combinations are endless. Not only is this a welcome resource for website design, but it would also be useful for creating your own swatch of color for home redecorating.
