    I had a few links to some great colour scheme websites, but I lost them. Anyone got some good resources?

    I'll start with ColorMixers and ColorMatch 5k

    There was one I deeply miss which is like a database of color schemes which you can submit to. A great resource if you are quickly putting together some designs for clients. I'd love it if I could find that again :(..

    Also, try learning the color wheel and how to create a color palette. It'll make you more felxible.

    For some reason I just suddenly remembered what a couple of the links were!

    ColourWhore and COLOURlovers

    I love it when that happens :D. thanks for the idea snkTab - i've got a rough idea of how to create palletes - using monos and complementarys etc. But still plenty of room for improvement

    Colour Schemer Studio is a fun app to play with, good for grabbing and manipulating colour schemes...until the trial period runs out that is!
