Wynd’s Tips #6 Palette Creator extension for Google Chrome

Read full article  | No Comments

Hey folks Welcome to Wynd’s Tips Wednesday, where I share a few tips that you can  use  to ease your creation process. Occasionally I’ll  talk about non-Secondlife tips too.

Ya just never know what we’ll be up to at Wyndaveres   so check back often and enjoy!

This week I want to talk about color palettes!

Ever just get stumped or frozen when trying to pick the perfect colors? I know I do.Sometimes I just can’t come up with a palette I like.

Should the bow be blue or red?

What color looks best with green?

Do I want a warm romantic feel or something vibrant and bold?

These little burps sure can hold me back in the wee hours of the night when I’m creating.

The solution to this problem is age old; tried & true, look at photos or  nature & click save,pin, or fav button.

The photos do not need to be of anything in particular just be filled with colors you like.   It’s fun! I mean who doesn’t love browsing beautiful photos?

 

My favorite places to kick back  browse are:

Google + Wynd @ Google + images, Pinterest   and Deviant Art.

Not only will the pure beauty captured through the lens of photographers dazzle you but the creativeness of others will inspire you. Hopefully,  setting you on the path to resolving the bumps in the road of your own creative journey.

 

After you make a few selections your next stop is  “Palette Creator” for Google Chrome.

 

 

If you don’t have “Palette Creator” you’ll first need to be using Chrome.

Chrome is the Google internet browser. If you use something else I suggest you give Google Chrome a try, the extensions/apps are more than worth it!

Once you have Chrome and “Palette Creator” extension installed lets make some magic!

 

Go to any of the images you pinned saved or faved, hover your cursor over the image, and then  simply r-click the image.

Next, select how many colors you would like  Palette Creator to  pull from the image. I’ve chosen to create a 16 color palette.

looks pretty cool  don’t ya say? Actually when I created Wyndaveres.com I did use Palette Creator.

I have also used this for dressing myself. It’s great for putting together  coordinating colors in outfits. What a time saver!

 

I even used this to create a full 32 color palette I work from for all my products. It’s  saved me a ton of time and then all my creations coordinate with each other to boot!

This tool is one of my most valued, it’s quick and easy and fun to use.  I do hope you have enjoyed this week’s Wynd’s Tips!

Now it’s your turn!

Head out!  Do something nice for a friend, help an old lady across the street or buy a friend a gift..might a suggest a gift from Wyndaveres? The deed itself is not important, it’s only important that you do something kind for someone, anyone!

If we want to see change in the world we must be willing to be the change!

Thanks again for stopping in, please come back often and pop by to say howdy to me in your Secondlife.

Until next time, Wynd

Are you ready to  turn wishes and dreams into  real goals with measurable outcomes?

 

Yesterday is only who you used to be & today is a super special day, a chance to  be a

NEW YOU!

 

Speaking of who we used to be, let me apologize to you for my very long absence. I was ill, and I took a long journey with the fine Doctors of MGH of Boston and even had  Brain Surgery!

Wynd On the farm

I’ll get into the full details of THAT adventure in a very special “Wynd’s Tips Wednesday.”

 

For now, just know I am awesome! I’m not exactly the same as I was before but not different either. It’s a tale worth  reading I promise you.

 

Back to the important topic YOU.

They say:

If it’s not written down,

it’s not a goal.

 

Once you commit to paper or document you hold yourself accountable to achieve your goals and work to transform your  dreams into reality.

Let’s face it no one is going to do it for you, it’s up to you to be the best YOU you can be.  Wow that’s a bunch of “you’s” but YOU are so worth it.

To help with those tasks I challenge you to write 10 goals for this year.

 

Not those resolutions you declared on the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve but real, measurable goals. Listen to your heart, it knows what you are meant to be.

Speaking of listening,  Wyndavere’s hears you!
