Design Seeds Inspires Creative Color Palettes

We recently came across this really cool site called Design Seeds. It features a huge collection of color palettes derived from photos by the site’s curator. It’s very cool if you’re trying to nail a certain vibe graphically, but don’t want to come up with your colors from scratch. These little color palettes are perfect for slideshow creators, especially if you’re creating a show that uses a combination of colorful backgrounds, captions or photo borders.

To enter a specific color into ProShow, click on the color wheel then enter in the HEX or RGB color code. On the Design Seeds site, you can hover over any color with your mouse and it will give you the exact color code, just enter that into ProShow when adding text, backgrounds, borders, etc…
