How to Choose Matching Colors (Plus a Mac OS X Widget)

Not all of us may be gifted with that artistic sense. Choosing colors is an art but at least for us art commoners, we can approach it as a science. Knowing what colors go well together goes a long way - choosing paint for your house, picking wallpaper and accents, even with designing your website. Choosing colors that match would at least make things look a bit better, even if you’re not a certified art ace.
If you never paid attention to art appreciation/theory classes (if you ever had any), then this web-based tool is just for you. Color Jack: Sphere is a tool that lets you choose matching colors based on different color schemes. You can choose from schemes like analogous, complementary, split-complementary, triadic, up to six-tone schemes. You can manually pick the colors and the color wheel will adjust automatically for you choosing the best colors for your scheme.
What makes this tool just even better, is that you can choose settings fordifferent types of color blindness. More plus points for letting you choose from the normal spectrum to web-safe colors.
Now from better to best - it lets you export your generated scheme to differentswatches applications like Photoshop or Illustrator.
Visit Color Jack: Sphere here.
It’s also a downloadable widget for Mac OS X! Great for designers. I recommended this to two artist friends of mine and it’s become staples to their dashboard.
Download the widget here.
PS: Another site, ColorBlender offers much of the same except that it doesn’t recommend schemes for color blindness (Accessibility is the thing today!) . You might want to visit ColorBlender if you want a tool that matches for Pantone colors.
