Here are a couple of useful links which will help you when you are struggling for ideas or inspiration on colour schemes for your site:
Please feel free to add links or suggestions for other colour-related help.
Thanks for the links nuclearmoose.
A very inspirational site: how to get colour schemes from photos.
I have always believed that a useful way of learning is to discover how things should not be done.

Thanks for that NM. On anything remotely artistic I need all the help I can get. Plus constant reminders. 🙂
Those are great links. For any Mac users, this free app http://telcontar.net/MacApps/ColourSelector/, is wonderful for pulling color samples from images, sites, etc. Definitely worth checking out.
Wow. Your second link is a truly marvelous tool! I don’t have a LOT of trouble with color (started life as an interior designer, after all) but this will make tweaking SOOOOO much easier!
[BTW, podz, I have your page there separately bookmarked and in my design folder…. another great resource!]
vkaryl is your url a state secret? I wanted to stop by 🙂
If you have a burning desire to copy a color scheme from any page you visit there is always this option:
It allows you to enter a URL and it will return the codes for all the collors the page contains
nuclearmoose, I know both the two online resources you have suggested. In my opinion the second Wellstyled.com’s Color Scheme Generator 2 is, as far as I know, really the best online colour scheme generator.
Colorzilla is quite helpful when you seen an inspirational color.
It’s so nice to be able to quickly grab the color info, then just paste it into the “Enter RGB” on wellstyled.com.
Not at all, Root – only that I’ve been online so long in places where I NEVER gave out any info (CRPG boards, f’rinstance, and a couple of seo boards), I forget….

“An Explosion in a Crayon Factory” to be sure! 🙂
Found this link on MtnDewVirus’ site:
I’ve just posted an article on my site about a very nice flash based palette generator I found today. Not as fully featured as wellstyled.com’s but a lot nicer to use.
Flash Palette Generator
This is purdy neat. You can actually add colors to different divs to see how it looks laid out 🙂
