How to Use

In the Main Menu, select Tools and then Color Thesaurus.

Click any color in the Pick A Color bar to view other, similar colors. Alternatively, you can use the Pick a Color text box to find a color by name or by Hex Code.*

Click any of the resulting colors to branch out further and view another list of similar colors. This is a great way to find complementary (contrasting) shades.

*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, and BB = blues. The system uses two hex digits for each color. The values for each color run between 00 and FF. Here are some hex code examples:

  • #FF0000 is the purest red — red only, no green or blue


  • Black is #000000 — no red, no green, and no blue


  • White is #FFFFFF


  • #FF6600 would represent an orange hue.
