  • adobe kulor is nothing new, but before today it was all I knew (aside from the color tools inside of cs4).

    But I have wanted a tool to pull the colors from an image and recommend a palette for me to use for such a long time I was considering teaming up with a developer to try and create one, wo hoo, now there is no need.
