Color Palettes

When working with images and colors, palettes come to be very important.

Here are some links to pages that might be very helpful in your design projects or creations.

I looked specifically for Rococo color palette, but you can do the search you need for yourself on the same link. Choose an art style and get the color palette you need.

Also get into a higher level in your search with color palette generator, here with the link to the image you are interested you get it’s color palette.

Palettes are important for matching colors from images to backgrounds and their uses are infinite, play with colors and get the code color (RGB, Hexadecimal value or Pantone) for your web page or design project.

If you need already built color schemes
