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 Blender.
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!
