Some readers might remember that I wrote about bringing Kuler color themes into Photoshop some time ago, it was a real frustration that to me, and I dare say many others, that you couldn’t connect to you own Kuler themes directly from Photoshop. Well, I’m pleased to say those days are over!
Why You Need Kuler
Kuler, in it’s simlest form, allows the user to combine colors that compliment each other in various ways, be it in shade, tone or opposite side of a color wheel. Once you have a theme you can save it to your Creative Cloud for use in other Adobe Products.
What I love the most however, is that I can see a theme I like and can capture it using the Kuler app on my phone and have it sitting waiting for me when I get to Photoshop!
This isn’t just great for designers, if you’re a web designer, compositor, digital painter….. the list is endless, I think you’ll like this app / panel combo.
