Picking colors that don't clash.

What are some good resources for getting colour schemes/palettes for your designs? I usually mix/make them myself but sometimes I need quite a lot of colours to select from, and in that case, it extends the project time by quite a lot.

No... Resources for colour schemes and not ways to pick nonconflicting colours. –  JFW Feb 8 '11 at 4:34
    
did you read that question? Given that it says, "What I need is a resource that will help me choose a color (or colors) that go nicely with, or provide a good accent to, whatever main color I am working with on the design."—which sounds to me like a request for, well, resources for color schemes. Or looking at it another way: how many of its eight answers aren't an answer to your question? –  Dori Feb 8 '11 at 5:24

Dori is correct. This is duplicate content. –  Philip Regan Feb 8 '11 at 17:44
    
The title of the other question should probably be more general. –  e100 Feb 8 '11 at 19:21

I wrote an article a few months ago that covers how to choose color schemes, some resources for doing so, and some of the related psychology involved. However, if you just want something quick and dirty, check out Colour Lovers and Adobe Kuler.

@Zanlok: I hope you realize that both Colour and Color are valid ways to spell the word. One is British English, and the other American English respectively. –  Johannes Feb 8 '11 at 15:06
    
indeed, and it's still a foolish pride thing –  zanlok Feb 8 '11 at 16:29
