How to Use

Access the Color Thesaurus from the main menu under Tools > Other Tools > Color Thesaurus.

From here, click on a color in the Pick a Color bar, and watch the color options appear. Alternatively, you can use the Pick a Color text box to find a color either by name, or by typing in all or any part of its Hex Code.*

Once the related colors are displayed, you can click on any one of those to see a list of its related colors. Here, you may find complementary and contrasting colors.

*About Hex Codes: Commonly employed to represent colors on web pages and image-editing programs, the hex system uses the format #RRGGBB, with RR = reds, GG = greens, BB = blues. (The # symbol is used to indicate that the number has been written in hex format.) This system uses two hex digits for each color, eg #FF6600. The values for each color run between 00 and FF.

  • #FF0000 will be the purest red — red only, no green or blue
  • Black is #000000 — no red, no green, and no blue
  • White is #FFFFFF

So, #FF6600 would represent an orange hue.
