Color coordination has never been easier. color hunter generates a complete color palette directly from a photograph. Upload your own digital image or access color schemes from previously loaded Flick'r API photo thumbnails. Search for color schemes with a tag, "hex" color code, or an image's URL. Locate and click on a desirable color swatch and new color ranges and photographs appear. Each color comes with a useful color code. You can also use color hunter to separate out colors from a photo to "see" what colors might be used to create a painting of the same subject matter. Users do not need to open an account to access the tools in color hunter. Having an account does provide a "favorites" file to store previous photos and palettes. There are ads along the right side of the screen and links to other sites across the bottom of the page. They are not obtrusive but remember to advise students to avoid them.

In the Classroom

Encourage students to use this tool to enhance projects and presentations. With "color hunter," multimedia presentations can have the look and feel of their subject. For example, enhance a report on Ancient Greece by entering a key word such as Parthenon and immediately receive color schemes characteristic of this period in time. Suggest this page as a tool to help students create online posters using sites such as Web Poster Wizard (reviewed here) or Motiveator reviewed here. Students studying web design can use this free site to develop web pages around a key photo. Art teachers can also use this tool on a projector or interactive whiteboard to show analogous/complementary color schemes in photos, then "pull" the colors to help students "see" them.
