When working on a digital project such as a website design or a logo for a business, a key issue everyone faces is deciding on a color scheme. Looking for complimentary colors, new color shades or just getting ideas for a theme? Adobe, the creators of Photoshop, have the perfect tool for you. Their color wheel tool is great for playing with colors and it encourages experimentation. Once you’ve decided on a color it will show you a color scheme, colors to pair it with and even give you the digital color numbers so you can put them right into the program you’re using.
To use the tool, simply drag the circle with the arrow inside to the color you like. Then use the color rule tab on the left hand side to determine what the other four color circles will show. Then simply look to the bottom of the page to find all of the digital color numbers.
