kuler shares color themes
Adobe has introduced a technology preview of kuler, a Web-hosted application that allows users to quickly create and share color themes over the Web. kuler delivers an interactive and "communitarian experience" that delivers on the promise of Web 2.0, according to the company. Users can collaborate and share color themes based on predefined color formulas or create custom themes using kuler's interactive color wheel. It also enables users to tag, comment on and share themes with fellow designers seeking creative inspiration around color. In addition, users of Adobe Creative Suite have the added ability to save their color themes as Adobe Swatch Exchange files (.ASE) for use in their Illustrator CS2, InDesign CS2, Photoshop CS2 and GoLive CS2 workflows. Kuler is built using Adobe Flash 9 Player and ActionScript 3.0.
