Color/Gradient Generator from hex codes
August 27, 2010 8:04 AM   Subscribe

Looking for a color/gradient generator where you put in your hex code (#6699CC) and it generates shades of that color from white, to the color, to black. It's a very plain page with just the shades from light to dark and their hex codes.

Something like this Three Color Gradient Generator?

No, it's a tool where you just put in your one color, but that might work.

To clarify, this is an existing site, and I lost my bookmark. Can't find it in google, or on the sites I would have got the link from in the first place.

I really like color synthaxis. It takes some tinkering with to get the results you like, but it's worth the effort.

I don't know if any of these are what you had in mind, but thought I would share the list just in case:

You could do this manually by incrementing or decrementing all the values at the same time:

#4477AA
#5588BB
#6699CC
#77AADD
#88BBEEE

You can do that with this.

None of those is the specific site I was looking for, but I appreciate the links!

This one the entire page was just colors, in a column from white down to black. It didn't do complimentary colors, etc, just shades.

@odinsdream, that works, but this was a little more subtle.

Might have been Westciv's linear gradient tool? But you could try searching delicious for something like gradient tool to see if the one you're thinking of comes up.

Probably not what you're looking for, but I'll throw it out there.

It wasn't called a gradient generator as far as I remember, that's just what it looked like when it generated the shades. I'm pretty sure it had the word hex in it.

Thanks for all the links.
