Here be a few links for colour stuff.

1) Kuler: http://kuler.adobe.com/
This site is very vey cool and helps with lots of ideas.

2) Visibone: http://www.visibone.com/colorlab/ a nice simple site that remembers your choices as you work per session.

3) http://www.ficml.org/jemimap/style/color/wheel.html - a simple colour wheel thats also easy to use.


Hope this helps!

Those sites are helpful, but finding and then sticking to using that limited color palette is often the difficult part.

I usually stick to a single range of color with another color to complement it for links. For choosing colors I just remember:
Code:

#00 00 00
  R   G   B

Knowing this you can roughly guestimate your colours and select a wider range of colors easier(IMO) than a color picker. The color wheels are fine, and those links are certainly better than any others that I used to use to choose color. I still do from time to time, but not as often.

good and useful sites, thanks!

Hey that kuler.adobe site is excellent! Thanks for sharing. Not sure I get how you can easily retrieve the color names/definitions of each color scheme though. The best thing I can think of is to take a screenshot and then use PSP or Photoshop tools to identify the colors. Or perhaps there's more options if you register?

You have to register to download

Or you can click edit and it will show you all of the values.
