Submit a palette for everyone else to make patterns from.
First of all you need to have your browser's address bar visible. (also called location bar or URL bar ) How? Each browser is a little different so you'll need to Google it with the name of your browser.
On the pattern page, below the pattern, click on 'create pattern' - You'll get the following URL - notice the patternID at the end
On the palette page, click on 'create pattern' - You'll get the following URL with all the colors are listed in HEX code
All on one line - real example
To combine them, all you have to do is add up the 2 endings, link them with a '&' like in the example just below
All on one line - example
Once you have the palette code and pattern code in the address bar like in the above screenshot, press the keyboard [ENTER] key or the 'Go' button by the address bar to validate.
In simple, all you do is add the patternID string &patternDefinitionID=23941 (that you went to fetch earlier) at the end of the palette URL
Voilà! Simple! =)
PS: I think the pID=1273152 is for CL engine to get the palette name and add it to the description
I'm new to Colorlouvers. How can I use this site in my food photography work? Luv any thoughts!
You might want to check out some Japanese Hand-colored Photos then pick a palette and use those colors to color a photo. I know that's not food related but it sounds like fun to me. For food photography, I think COLOURlovers could be helpful if you ever run into a situation when you ask yourself: "Is the color of that tomato not quite appetizing?" If ever you do, I think you could find the perfect red in the library, and add a little color life into the image.
The other day I stumbled across a graph that represented international color usage by country. But now, I seem to have lost the link. Have any of you colorlovers seen this or something like it?
Well, if you could settle for Colors of the Social World Wide Web we could help you out. An interesting subject, no doubt; a link I'm sure we would all love to see. Are we talking total usage of colors across every use of color: web, print, coloring book pages, etc? Doubt anyone has the info to graph that one out. But any international comparison of color is definitely interesting.
Has anyone seen any comparisons around?
