tools | color palette creator v1.6.1 This tool was inspired directly by the excellent Creating Color Palettes article by Andy Clarke. It will create 10 shades of the base color, located top-left, at varying degrees of opacity. The top row emulates opacity over a white background, the bottom over black (or colors of your choosing as of v1.4). The opacity values are 100% opaque, 75%, 50%, 25% and 10% on the top row. How to use it: Type a valid six character hexidecimal value in the text box above and hit the "ok" button. Hit the "output hex" button to have the table below the palette display hexidecimal color values. Click the "save base" button to write the current base color to a cookie for safe keeping. As of version 1.6, you can export all of your saved palettes to a PNG image by clicking the "create PNG" button in the "saved" window.
