AI powered colour palette generators

Choosing the right colour palette for a project may seem easy but can in fact it can be a minefield if you do not have a solid understanding of colour theory. With AI colour generators you can not only generate a tone of different colour schemes, you can also get colour scheme suggestions for different website types. This is hugely useful in helping you create a range of complimentary colour combinations that you know are guaranteed to look good.

Overall the advantages of smart color generators are in the millions. For example, they can help you create more accessible designs that consider colour blind users, helping you create inclusive digital experiences that still look great! It doesn’t stop there, AI colour generators can also use their machine learning algorithms to find and extract dominant or complementary colours from images. Therefore, they can help you create a colour palette that will perfectly compliment the images you plan to use as well as the business type or feel you are after.

One of our top picks is Colormind which generates a range of colour schemes for websites and design templates. You can also upload an image and it will generate a plethora of colour palettes for you.

Another of our picks is Khroma. This AI colour generator asks you to pick 50 colours to start with and creates a personalised dashboard with a range of font types, posters and images for you to choose from. We know 50 is quite a lot but it will be worth the effort in the end. The unique part of this generator is that it uses a personalised algorythm to produce colour palettes which it knows you are going to like.

We are now in the era where most of us are using our phones more than any other device. This means that mobile friendly websites are massively important – to the point where some experts design the mobile layout of a website before any other device type!

  • compress and resized images without compromising image quality

5. AI driven natural language processors

The ability to create good quality, brief specific content is an essential skill for any web professional. This can be very time consuming though and rushing this process can often result in sloppy copy that doesn’t get the key messages across. By using a language processor you can create a content outline to help keep a plan of what you are writing. You can also instruct the processor (NLP) to analyse your copy and give you an improved or more succinct version. Furthermore, web pros should consider SEO when creating content as this will ensure the website ranks well on SERP’s.

An important tip is to remember not to use an NLP to create content that you post on a website straight off, make sure you personalise your content is crucial. Also be careful with plagiarism as some NLP’s may have very similar text to other websites which will not be good for a website and it’s discoverability.
