|When you are
familiar with software applications such as Adobe Photoshop,
Flash and other drawing programs, I know you are also very much
familiar with the swatches. Swatches contain selection of
different colors that you can use during the creation of your
web design, graphic design, and animation. Know what, we have a
new innovation in these swatches. This is the so-called Color
According to the blog entitled “Color Blender” which was posted by Neil last
October 27, 2004 at www.eightlines.com, the author mentioned
that this Color Blender allows you to take two colors and see
blends of up to 10 different ones from which you can get their
HTML Hex codes.
How can you do it? It’s actually as simple as 1-2-3. The following
procedures were also mentioned in the said article. First, you
need to pick a color value format, input two valid CSS color
values in the format you chose, and pick the number of midpoints
you'd like to see. During this step, the palette will show the
colors you input as well as the requested number of midpoint
colors and the values of those colors. All numbers are rounded
to the nearest integer. When you click on a square in the
"waterfall" display, it will fill in the appropriate value for
whichever input is highlighted. And, when you switch between
value formats, it will translate whatever values are in place.
Clicking on the "Clear" button removes all values and colors,
but does not change the current value format.
With this, graphic art professionals and web developers can now experiment
more in the color combinations in their projects thus, making
them more creative and innovative in their line of work. I would
like to commend the programmers of this simple yet so important
program. More power!
