Color Wheel Pro - See Color Theory in Action
A software program to create color schemes and preview them on real-world examples.
What Is Color Wheel Pro?
Unlike other color utilities, Color Wheel Pro lets you preview your color schemes on real-world examples — websites, logos, product packages — not just on a row of ordinary color boxes.
Key Differences From Other Color Utilities
1. Color Wheel Pro shows color schemes on real examples. When you rotate the color wheel, colors in the preview image change immediately — you see how your new color scheme plays out as a logo, a website and then as a corporate identity package. You don't have to guess how your color scheme will look on real artwork.
