Natural Colors from Photographs

9435 Tweet Share

The importance of building a congruent color palette for web design is paramount. A person’s eye will automatically make judgments on color based upon their human instinct. Green is seen as a representative of nature, purple reflects that of royalty, and white portrays a feeling of neutral calm and so forth. When selecting your own color scheme from a photo, online color palette generators can be a helpful tool to work with.

In order to do it from scratch, you will need a good photo with the feeling you are trying convey and maybe only two strong colors. Start off by choosing the most vibrant color, then the second most vibrant to compliment the first. The remaining three colors to select will be less saturated and designed to balance the first two. This is a tricky thing to do, so if it doesn’t give you the result you are looking for the first time, keep practicing, and maybe choose another photo. We use our photography from nature for best results.

Online color palette generators each provide a different result. The best way to find the one for you, is to try the same image in all of them, to see who gives you the results you are looking for.
