    Does anyone know of any references or applications to show a completely color deficient moron some color scheme considerations for sites?

    Looking for something that would help a person who can't even match the color of his clothes properly!

    Info can include any sites, books, applications, or techniques. Thanks in advance!

    Hi, trying not be hard on u....


    its all around u

    there are rules (not many)

    complimentry colours

    look at magazines (good ones) tv, video

    go to the diy store and get one of all the colour cards for paint samples = (pantone book)

    play with them


    look inside yourself

    pastel colours = soft gentle

    anger = red
    cold = blue
    peace = green

    i'm in the uk

    all the banks are either blue or green (there signs)
    because they are safe colours trusting

    macdonalds burger king all red and yellow
    want u in and out fast (more money)ppl are not happy looking at red all the time

    hee hee

    i spent 4 years learning it....

    raid the diy store get colours and find yourself, takes time but it will come

    trust me if u can design a bit, it will come

    have fun

    real help needed

    That reply was great for you maybe, but not so easy for all. I would be interested myself as I have a VERY creative mind but am color blind as a bat!
    A simple color wheel with THE NAMES of the colors would be fantastic.
    I made a pic of a woman once that was remarkable with the exception that her skin was a shade of green because I didn't have a color name to pic from. PURE SHAME it was.

    When you go to styles in Photoshop you get a description popup when you mouse over, why can't we get the same for colors?
