Not in love with the color combos listed above? Then how about selecting the color palette directly from your image?!

Try ColorPalette FX or visit Adobe’s Color Wheel and simply upload the image you wish to pull color values from and presto. Not only that but Palette FX will also provide a contrast color and a color harmony triad to accent your palette, and…. well, as to be expected the Adobe options are almost infinite. Choose from color triad, complementary palettes, shade variations to monochromatic, and more. Plus Adobe even has a library of color themes to explore. Fun! Once you have created your palette, just copy the six digit hexadecimal value and you’re all set for ProShow!
