ColorScheme Gallery - 3000+ Swatches of Inspiration

Until I finally nail picking out colors, I'm going to be on the lookout for any color related resources that can help my plight.

Today I found the ColorSchemer Gallery.

It is what the name suggests - thousands of color combinations, named and tagged. Should be a great source of inspiration.

Whenever I create an admin section of a site, I like to pick a fairly random color scheme to play with. My theory being that I might surprise myself with what looks good. Usually, the results are pretty hideous, but of course, it's the admin section so who cares.

Perhaps next time I'll pick a random page of the gallery and "force" myself to use one of the schemes.

In fact, here's a bookmarklet to do just that:
