Free Vector Art | Graphic Design Vectors | Illustrator | Freebies | Keep Designing Chromafiltre Le Chromafiltre est un outil Flash1 vous permettant de choisir et d'accorder visuellement des couleurs. La roue chromatique utilisée par l'auteur, Olivier de Brito, a l'originalité d'être basée sur les trois couleurs primaires classiques des peintres, à savoir le rouge, le jaune et le bleu. Deux sections sont disponibles en bas de l'outil: le Cercle: choisissez jusqu'à trois couleurs, accordez-les à votre guise, puis récupérez les codes HTML correspondants. les Gammes: près de 140 accords de couleurs prêts à l'emploi, que vous pouvez obtenir en choisissant conjointement un effet (de "puissante" à "sobre") et un type d'accord (de "analogue" à "contrastée"). La présence de la roue chromatique ainsi que les textes explicatifs pour chaque gamme en font un outil didactique appréciable. <p>Olivier de Brito</p> pour toute suggestion. 1 : Pour pouvoir utiliser l'outil, vous pouvez vous procurer le plug-in Flash ici: Player Flash par Macromedia
