Colorschemedesigner.com is an online color scheme designer for websites and graphics design projects. The site uses a color wheel to allow the user to select the base color to be used for the color scheme. The tool allows the user to select from a number of scheme types, including mono, complement, triad, tetrad, analogic and accented analogic. A preview of the generated color scheme is shown in real time as the base color is changed. Previews of HTML pages using the scheme can also be selected. The user can select between a light page example and a dark page example. Users can also generate a random palette using the tool.
Users can also adjust the saturation and brightness of the scheme. In addition, a list of the colors used with their hexadecimal color value can be displayed. The user can export the color scheme to HTML with CSS, XML, text, ACO (Photoshop palette) or GPL (Gimp palette) format. The tool also has undo and redo functions. The site also contains a vision simulator, which shows an example of what the normal population sees, along with examples of what persons with various forms of colorblindness see, such as protanopy, deuteranopy and others.
