If you are a Creative freak who loves color or a Designer, I am sure Kuler will attract you in the first shot. This was discovered by the creative team at Adobe and they called it as Kuler – pronunciation is same as color – “Discover Adobe® Kuler™“
As you all aware, there are some millions of colors existing in this colorful world to choose from. As such no color is waste, no color is useless, no color is non-attractive. In other words it all depends on how, when and where you use a particular color. Being a creative freak, you will have an idea on which color looks good in your room or for your website or accessories or dressing etc., but many times we fail to choose the right shade of color which is really in your mind. Adobe® Kuler is the right tool to take the right decision of colors.
Adobe® Kuler is a web-hosted application for exploring, creating and sharing color themes. It helps you to experiment quickly with color variations, browse and use thousands of themes from the Kuler community.
