Is there a good resource or tool to help build a palette around colors I select?

Can anyone recommend a good tool / website for finding color matches for a certain color I specify?

Until now I've been using the Photoshop's opacity / overlay blend mode to get more color variatians, but I don't think this is the way to do it :D

I think http://www.colorblender.com/ is a good example of what I'm looking for, but I want something better

Alex, I dont know what "something better" is to you, but what I think you are looking for is this one goodie:

http://colorschemedesigner.com/

You can use it to find complement, triad, tetrad, analogic and accented analogic colours. You can even adjust it to take into account colour blind users and export the colour pallette.

In the "Tools You Already Have" department, Window > Extensions > Kuler allows you to enter a key color and riff on different harmonies (Monochromatic, Complementary, Triadic, etc.), and allows you to save harmonies you like and/or load them into the Swatches panel.
