Color Palettes & Other Freebies

I love the colors of the west, and they inspire me every day in all of my designs. I thought I’d share them with you, using many of the images that I’ve taken over the years.

Feel free to download these color palettes and use them in your own designs! (Please note, JUST the color palettes, NOT the images are available for you to use.)

You can import them into any graphics editor and sample the colors to use them in your designs, or use the Color Scheme Creator from Adobe Kuler. Click the small camera icon in the upper right corner of the screen to upload the image and create your color scheme, then download to your computer to be imported into Photoshop or Illustrator as an ASE file. (Hint: the small circles can be dragged to the swatch samples in the image to select exactly those colors, or you can choose to go with the colors that the tool chooses.)

To download images, click on the image you would like and then right click on the enlarged image and select “Save Image As” to save to your computer.
