One of the earliest steps in the design process is selecting a color palette for your wedding. It can be very difficult since there is an infinite number of beautiful color combinations to choose from! One thing that might make this process a little easier is a color palette generator. A color palette generator will identify the colors used in a photo that you supply. Some that we love are PHOTOCOPA, DeGraeve, and CSS Drive.
PHOTOCOPA was the fave at Detailz. You can see all of the swatches for the photo uploaded, and then pull them into your custom palette. They also provide a variety of pre-generated palettes from your image. You can also create a login and save your palettes for future use.
DeGraeve is great for web design and looking for bright colors. While they don’t offer all of the colors in the image, they do highlight the most prominent AND give you the HEX codes for HTML. What an easy way to coordinate your Twitter page to your avatar! :)
The final one we used was by CSS Drive. They allow you to either upload a photo, or paste a link to a photo. They also give you the option of a custom palette like PHOTOCOPA, but it’s not as easy to use. It only saves your prior colors clicked, while PHOTOCOPA allows you to rearrange your swatches.
We hope you find this post helpful on your future creative ventures!
