Cool Color Picker Generates Intermediate Shades

I don't know about you, but I love stumbling across cool gadgets, especially when they're free! My folder of handy online tools, scripts, and code generators continues to swell every day. Topping the list is a truly useful tool I stumbled across a few days ago. Eric Meyer's Colour Blender generates a series of intermediate shades from two colours that you specify. This is a great resource for creating web palettes (or any type of color scheme) on the fly!

Choose hex or RGB, select your start colours from a point-and-click color picker, and set the number of midpoints, then simply click Blend, and the picker will generate the code for you. Technology Lighthouse's ColorCache product does the same thing, and much more, for a modest fee of $35 USD.

Note: Meyer is a CSS maven and author of numerous books
on cascading stylesheets. His web site is also a fountain of information on this topic.

Here's a link to another color palette that I use on a regular basis. http://www.colorschemer.com/online.html

Thanks for taking the time to share your knowledge with us!
