12/4/07 - Added a favorite icon. You should see a nice little lock in your address bar.
9/17/07 - Improved the color search. It is now faster and there are more color tags to search on, such as tangerine, chartreuse, mustard, etc. etc.
8/28/07 - We are running a design contest over at DigitalPoint. You can win $50 by creating a color swatch illustration for us. The first five entrants will get a link on the ColorCombos.com front page for a month.
7/01/07 - We switched out the ColorCombos template this afternoon. Most of the site uses the new template, except for the ComboTester. We hope to have it switched over soon. If you spot any bugs, please report them using our contact form. Thanks!
6/06/07 - The ColorCombos template is getting old.
So I started a template design contest over at DesignOutpost.
If you are an artist and would like to compete, you
can find it here.
Tell all of your designer friends!
4/30/07 - Here's a new service you might find useful.
It is called PickyDomains.
Instead of paying thousands of dollars for a domain
name, you pay $50 and let their domain namers come
up with ideas for you. I plan on giving it a try real
11/11/06 - I turned the ComboLibrary hex colors
into links. Now you can click on the individual hex
color links and it will take you to the ComboTester
5/06/06 - A couple of weeks ago I turned off the
Forum. The spam accounts became too much. Tonight
I got rid of the tab once and for all.
2/14/06 - A few weeks ago I got an email from the
editor of Practical
Web Design magazine in the UK. ColorCombos was
awarded their star site award in the February Issue.
Here's a link
to a PDF of the page. It felt great showing the
magazine to everyone at work. Now, if I can just get
one of my sites profiled in a newspaper OR a podcast
OR on televion like one of my friends
12/10/05 - Squidoo
opened up to the public this week. I created my first
"lens", about Color Combinations, of course. You can find it here - Color Combinations All lens are a work in progress.
I hope to add more valuable color resources as time
10/31/05 - I demoted the Make Template link on the
ComboTester to the Options dropdown and moved the
Get the Link option along side of the Add Column link.
10/8/05 - I added the FeedBlitz email signup box
to the sidebar. Now you can get the Latest Color Combinations
by Email and RSS.
10/7/05 - I finally added an RSS feed! Now you can
subscribe to a feed that contains the latest Color
Combinations added to the library. Click on the XML
icon above. This will take you to the Feedburner site
where you can subscribe.
9/5/05 - I finally updated the Grab
Color page so that it can now grab colors inside
of linked css files, along with import files. It isn't
perfect, but at least now it can grab colors from
pages like simplebits.com and meyerweb.com.
9/4/05 - We are excited to announce that we have
installed the latest version of ColourMod. This tool
is used as the color selector for our ComboTester
page. The new version is faster and looks stunning.
It pops up within the current browser window, which
should get rid of the issue with popup blockers. Lastly,
you can click and drag it around. Check it out. Thanks
to Stephen at ColourMod
for writing it AND helping us with the installation.
6/20/05 - We added another great new feature to
page Now you can select 'Get Complementary Colors'
from the Other Options dropdown menu. This takes you
to a screen which lets you choose which color to base
the complementary colors on. By clicking on one of
the colors you are taken back to the ComboTester to
view the results. Enjoy.
6/13/05 - I added a new feature to the ComboTester
called 'Grab Website Colors'. You can get to the page
by using the Other Options dropdown on the Combo Tester
page or by going here.
You simply enter a URL and the site attemps to grab
all of the hex colors found at that address. The script
is not smart enough yet to parse out values found
in the include files, but I hope to add that soon.
This is probably the most useful feature I've added
6/11/05 - The other day I saw this image
on Yahoo. So I took samples using Nattyware's Pixie
and created this Combo.
I thought it turned out ok.
6/11/05 - Made more improvements to the Combo Library
Search. There are even more color tags to search on,
such as midnight
and even salmon.
6/4/05 - Improved the Combo Library Search. Now
you can use color tags to search the Combo Library.
For example, you can search for all combos that contain
purple. You can even use multiple color names (separated
by a comma) to narrow down your search.
