Adobe Kuler CC

10/30/14  |  Posted by Zachary James  |  Posted in Digital Creativity

Adobe Color CC is an application that allows users to make and save their own unique color harmonies for personal use or to share. Users can make a pallet that consists of five colors.

(Adobe Color CC used to be known as Kuler – Adobe recently changed its name!)

Users are able to tell Adobe Color CC to force their color scheme to be analogous, monochromatic, triadic, complementary, compound, to use various shades, or allow total freedom. Adobe Color CC is great for quick color choice for designs and is also great for carefully thought out color harmonies. Adobe Color CC will also relay some extra info about the color that has been made such as its separate RGB values and the HEX number.

Users can search for user made color palettes by keyword in the Adobe Color CC database online and through Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign (as long as you are connected to the internet.) If users have an Adobe ID, they can also save certain palettes as favorite themes for quick access.

Adobe Color CC is available both online and in some of Adobe’s programs, allowing users to export a color scheme straight into Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe InDesign. Color palettes made by you, or downloaded from the database can be imported as swatches for easy access. In one of Adobe’s programs, Adobe Color CC can generally be found under the menu tab:

Window->Extensions->Adobe Color Themes

When opened, it should appear as a window or tab in whatever program you’re using. If you cannot find Adobe Color CC through the program you are using you can download it here. From there on out you won’t need to worry about downloading again.

Adobe Color CC is free to use and is a very helpful tool in creating work digitally.

Happy Arting!
