A few weeks ago I wrote a blog post about Aviary and how you could either edit your image or create a new image using their Phoenix editor. Shortly after writing that, I was looking into their Toucan Color Swatches software, and it is really neat! I thought 'what an awesome way to choose your websites color palette!'
Sometimes a picture can bring inspiration for a color theme, whether it be for a room or website design, although it can be difficult to match the colors. With Aviary's Toucan software, matching colors and creating palettes is a piece of cake!
Simply launch the Toucan program and upload a photo. You can load photos from a variety of places like Facebook, Flickr, Picasa, your computer, or Aviary's own photo album. Roll your mouse (thermometer) over the photo to view its color codes. When you find the color you want, drag it to your color palette.
When you've got all of the color codes you want, enter them into your 'Colors, Fonts and Options' area as desired. The color codes that you'll want to use with your website are found in the 'Color deficiency preview' of the Toucan dashboard. ie) b54142
Give Toucan a try and share your work with others reading this post. We'd love to see your creativity in action!
