To help me find Contrastive/Complementary colors, I have been relying on websites like https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/a/3815, https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/a/5159, https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/a/8084, https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/a/16445, https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/a/17536.

Can Adobe Photoshop accomplish this offline? I use Adobe Photoshop 23.1.1 on Windows 10.

By the bye, shouldn't some of these questions be closed as duplicates?

  • @Scott ok. I removed that sentence.

Photoshop has an internal links to load an external resources... Both Adobe Color Schemes, and Prisma are color palette tools one can load via Window > Extensions...

enter image description here

These essentially load a web site's tools as a panel...

For my use, I always find them horribly slow to load and annoying (Your milage may differ). It's easier for me to simply visit a web site dedicated to color palettes.

Even though you can load palette generating panels in Photoshop, it's not going to choose colors for you.

So "can Adobe Photoshop automatically pick color... " No.

It can show you what a palette dictates as complimentary/contrastive, but it won't "choose" any color for you.
