  2. I spent quite a bit of time over a couple days playing with all the different color selection tools you listed and finally picked up Color Schemer Studio. I also bookmarked “I like your colors” and have used it quite a few times on site with great color schemes. I then put them into the favorites on Color Schemer and I have a record for when I start playing seriously with my CSS.

    Thanks for all the hard work.

  4. Thanks for sharing the link. Some of the color tools I’ve already blogged on are included in it and others aren’t. I appreciate your sharing. Best wishes for happy blogging. :)

    Thanks for providing the Real Color Wheel. It’s a useful tool and I’m glad to have found it and to have linked to it. This is a very new blog but it’s growing quickly so I’m sure that over time many visitors here will click through and use the wheel.
    Best wishes
