Paletton, the color scheme designer
In love with colors, since 2002.
Paletton.com is a designer color tool designed for creating color combinations that work together well. It uses classical color theory with ancient artistic RYB color wheel to design color palettes of one to four hues, each of five different shades. Various preview style can be chosen to test and view the colors in combinations, many examples are available to see the palette used in web site design, UI design or in a randomly drawn picture. Tartan fabric preview is alos available for those interested in textile and interior design.
This palette tool uses various color models to combine adjacent colors and/or complementary colors to the main hue. Select models from monochromatic to triad or tetrad color sets, with or without a complement (the opposite hue), enjoy even the free-style mode. Play with palette brightness and saturation, select from predefined presets, or create random palettes. The unique vision simulation filter emulates the palette as seen by people with various vision weakness, color blindness, various variants of daltonism (protanopy, deuteranopy, tritanopy, protanomaly, deuteranomaly, tritanomaly, dyschromatopsia or achromatopsia), as well as several gamma simulations (simulation of too bright display or too dark print), desaturation, grayscale conversion or webcolors (the legacy 216-color palette). The palette can be exported in many various formats (HTML, CSS, LESS, XML, text, PNG image, Photoshop ACO swatch palette or Gimp GPL palette format). Check color contrast of all color pairs used in the palette and test if the color contrast fits WCAG requirements. More info about colors in the Colorpedia.
Paletton is the successor of the previous Color Scheme Designer 3 application, used by almost 20 milion visitors since 2009 (while the first version was published in 2002), both professional designers and amateurs interested in design, mobile or desktop application design or web design, interior design, fashion or home improvement and make-overs.
