Colors are a major part of our surrounding. Not only one at
a time, but also numerous colors are seen at one place soothing
our eyes. When designing for a web colors are as important
as well. Choosing fabulous color schemes is not a difficult
task but is still, not done by all.
On a web page, it is not only the text, but colors speak as
well. They help creating moods. And if not chosen appropriate,
they may be unable to convey your frame of mind.
Colors may also perform the task of a logo. People will not
have to read your name. They will recognize your style. For
example, when ever you see blood red and blue together on
a billboard you think of a PEPSI ad ahead before you recognize
it was some other product. And if it would be of some other
drink, you will assume the color scheme has been stolen. Colors
do have psychological effects. . Your unique style of color
scheming may give you and your web pages an independent character.
Here are some tips you can apply for your page. If you are
not able to make a good days choice of which colors to choose
you can prefer merging same color tones on the page. Go for
shades of same color. Contrasts should also be used for a
web page as they help making things prominent. A key word
or message may be put into a bright color scheme that catches
Using Photoshop we can easily play around with colors. If
you are confused about coloring a picture, you can make a
plate of your own, beside the page, to test different shades.
Make a collection of numerous bright, dull, light, dark and
contrast colors on your plate so that you choose the best.
When choosing colors you also have to be cautious regarding
the number of pictures you would be using. If there are more
than one-correlated pictures, you should make sure their colors
are not weird matches. Their colors should correlate as well.
Or else they may not catch eyes. You can give one base background
color to the page. Then, for every pic you may choose similar
borders. Or, one color used in a particular picture, if used
in the other one as well will automatically correlate them-
no matter if the color is used for text in one and a small
base in other pic.
The most imperative part of coloring is to scheme them.More
you try using different colors more you learn how to use them.
Trials are the best way to learn. If not at first but sometime
you will find a scheme you’d love to use.
