12 Beautiful Web Design Color Schemes Effortlessly Generated from Real-World Photographs with Adobe Color

by Viktor Solovey

Nature effortlessly pairs colors together that work. So darn well. The different shades of green on a leaf. The browns in wood grain.

As designers, observing and learning from nature, then, is a powerful tool. We can “borrow” its color combinations to inspire our own designs.

Adobe put out a free tool to help you do that: Color. It’s a mobile app as well as website app that generates color schemes automatically from images you upload.

It creates a great starting point to work from, and gives you a wonderful direction to follow to your final color scheme.
