Color Palette Generator

Fred Showker's creative jump-start

Surrounded by spam and jumping, jittering, gyrating spam, you'll find the Color Palette Generator, which automagically create a color palette from any photo.
      Choose or upload a photo and a color palette based on the colors in the photo will be generated automatically. We tried a photo of the new boat, and here's the tight_squeeze.ase file for Photoshop!
