In my attempt to come up with a different blend idea, I came across this idea from the blending section of this site: http://pourpre.com/chromograf/en/

It's fairly easy, if you want to know how to do it :)

LOVE! I'm a big fan of these colors.
oh cool!! What's this about! Tell me tell me!
But of course :) I'm curious to see what others come up with!

First step is to decide on four starting colors. I like to try and search for colors that have a common theme. For this tutorial, let's go with something bright, like fireworks!

fireworksFireworksfireworkFireworks_Dark_Red

It's up to you how subtle or drastic the difference between colors.

Now take these four colors, and insert them into the blend tab of this website: Pourpre Chromograf

Photobucket

Place with the positions of the colors until you have a blend that you like. Then set the grid value to 5. This will create the 5x5 block.

*I have done some block blends by hand, however this is a quicker method that produces the results before you actually plug them into the palette maker on colourlovers*

Once you're happy with the colors, you can start making the palette for colourlovers. The easiet way to do this is to make each palette according to the row of the block.

Photobucket

Simply click on top of each color and the code for that color will appear below. From that point make each palette on colourlovers like you normally would.

To create the html code, I use some basic HTML code. Start by viewing the preview of the palette in your internet brower. Copy that url. The html code it goes into is: img src="YOUR PALETTE PREVIEW URL HERE" style="width: 200px; height: 40px; border: 0 none;" alt="PALETTE NAME" This code goes into the <>
Do this with each palette so that the five images stack on top of each other. At the end I like to include the five palette badges as well.

And that's it! Simple right? If you have any questions, just shoot me a love note, I'll be happy to help! I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

I love this one. ^^ I really love the idea of using every color in the palette. This is exactly why I started the thread! So many cool new ideas :D

Right now I'm working on a multi-blend block blend....basically meaning a huge square that is 20 x 20. WISH ME LUCK! lol

Yes! It looks nice! =)
Thanks for sharing the idea!

Actually I gained a lot of time by not making really the palettes...
Maybe you'd be interested?
>> How to make a palette image without making a real one

Also there's a trick to quickly make palettes if you know the hex codes - look at the example links here, look at the URLs
Here's an example link - a prefilled palette you could save
Yea, I acutally have gone in a used the code like that before. I usually do like the make the palettes just so that I have a record of them that's a bit more permanent. It just depends on my situation lol

actually i feel like a lot of work and creativity is taken out of doing your own palettes in using the website to do hand blends, but that's of course, me speaking. The end result is really easy for anyone and really pretty :D
