    Question Color question

    Is there any programs or tools out there that will help you find the compliment (opposite) of a color, or the triad of a color, etc...?

    .....thats a good question.
    you could just file a contrast question here.
    i say just keep it as opposite as possible, but still within your taste.
    i cant think of a program that would do it though.

    Wait! Right after posting this, I did a search myself and found this nifty looking prog. I haven't downloaded it yet, and don't know if it will work or not, but here is the link:

    Good luck!


    Hmm, that is a very good question. The only thing I can think of off the top of my head, is if you have Adobe Photoshop, you could just make a box of a color and then invert the colors....I think it is Ctrl+I. Obviously a make shift way of doing things, but it's the best I can do right now.

    It does seem like there would be a program or even a website somewhere out there that would do that. If you haven't already, I would just suggest a Google search, but you probably already thought of that.

    Okay, I know I am getting a little post-happy here, but I just have to plug for this program. It is amazing. It reminds me of the color picker in Photoshop, only with more features and it doesn't take me 3 minutes to open. It will invert the color, and you can make the color more contrast or less contrast, but I haven't found anything to find a triad. Oh well, it is still useful.

    Hmm, just thought about this, but have you been to Visibone's Colorlab yet? They have a nifty deal but they only deal with websafe colors, and I am not sure what kind of colors you are looking at. Anyway, here is the link:

    just a quick note, you can better manipulate contrast of borders with the CSS2 outline attribute.

    outline-color:invert;

    this will perform a color inversion on the pixels on the screen.
    regardless of color background this will stay on contrast. heh

    Opera 6 and 7 do.

    Mozilla does, but only through the vendor-specific extension, -moz-outline, because it still has a few issues with drawing non-solid outlines.
