New Version Development Restarted!

Well, it’s been more than a year I promised the new ColorSchemeDesigner. My job duties couldn’t wait and there was absolutely no time to start. However, things has to be done, so I’d like to announce the next version of the application is really and finally under development. Some important things I’m planning:

  • Brand new and more accurate color-blind conversion algorithms
  • A widget to be easily inserted into your web page
  • Downloadable iPhone/iPad application (and perhaps others, too)
  • A searchable database of color schemes created by users
  • and much more…
We are really excited about all the new features on the schedule and looking forward to launch them as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience and enjoy ColorSchemeDesigner – it’s already a great application, and we hope it will be even better.

    I’d really like to get a look at the proper source code for the project. I’d like to adapt it for use in a Flash application, but it’s quite difficult for me, as a neophyte, to read the compacted JS source file. When might such a thing be available?

    The answer is simple: never. I won’t ever provide better readable nor commented code for public.

    Very nice program. I really like how’ve you’ve allowed for someone to tweak the variables and compose negative palettes.

    Thank you for making this app – it’s my favorite, go-to tool for choosing colors for web apps. I wrote a short script for taking the plaintext export of tetrad or accented analogic schemes and applying them to CSS stylesheets dynamically. Maybe someone else might find it useful, too. Parser for schemes: http://pastebin.com/JL7CpLNy and CSS converter: http://pastebin.com/wFEmd3bD

    Thanks for making this, looking forward to new and fabulous developments!

    This is a great tool. Thank you for putting this up. I have one suggestion though. I cannot use any of the supplied exports directly. It occurs to me that a simple and wide usable one would just be this:
    #define p0 rgb(10, 20, 30)
    #define p1 rgb(20, 30, 40)
    etc…
    I am using your accented analogic scheme and label the 25 colors p0-4, a0-4, b0-4 and c0-4. This is really easy to deal with in my code.

    Looking forward to the iPhone app. Will it be free with no ads?

    I would like to suggest a slight format change.
    Instead of having RGB read out as %, can we get an option to have it read out as the value out of 255? I never see rgb as % anywhere else, and I lose my frame of reference.

    I think if someone has taken the time and effort to create something wonderful like this we should be happy to pay for it! Not many of us work for free!

    I am looking forward to the widget to put on my site, and look forward to the new application. :)

    I don’t have a website, I use this program for art to understand color better. I love you for this. Thank you so much! I hope I’m able to use this for decades. I don’t know if I’ll ever get an iphone but I hope I will be able to use it on whatever smart phone I get. This is so awesome!
