Kuler: Is this Kul – ‘er What!

Kuler: Is this Kul – ‘er What!

Forgive me…I couldn’t resist with a name like Kuler! But seriously, is this tool cool or what! So, just what is Adobe Kuler? Simply put, it is an online color-matching tool that could help shave a few minutes off your workflow. But the truth is, it is much more than that.

Kuler, which was just released today, is touted by Adobe as being an online tool that helps you explore, create and share color themes for your web pages, design projects and other creative work. But the truth is, this online tool is more than just a tool – it is a community meeting place where designers and web developers alike will come and create color palettes, share color palettes – and even rank which color palettes are the most popular. Think of it as a color design community!

Kuler also provides you with the ability to take a color palette that you created using the innovative online tools, or use someone else’s creation and download the palette to be used with Adobe Creative Suite 2 applications. What a time saver!

So check it out. See what you think. Go to http://kuler.adobe.com. This tool requires the most recent version of the Adobe Flash Player – and I mean the most recent. If you see a screen asking you to upgrade – do it. Otherwise, Kuler won’t work.

As with all of the Adobe Labs projects, an important part of its development is your feedback. Adobe has setup a special forum to discuss Kuler – what you like, what needs to be changed, or just to leave kudos to the development team for this great project!
