Step 1: Choose an Image with Colours You Love
The first step is to find an image that you really like the colours of. This could be a photo, a painting, or even a screenshot of a website you admire. Once you have your image, head over to Coolors.co.
Step 2: Upload Your Image and Start the Generator
Once you're on Coolors.co, click on 'Start the generator.' From there, you can upload your image by clicking on the 'Upload' button. Coolors.co will then analyse the image and create a colour palette based on the colours in the image.
Step 3: Pick Your Colours
To pick the exact colours you want, click on the block of colour in the colour palette that you want to change. Then, scroll around with your mouse on the image and pick the exact colour you're looking for. Repeat this process for each colour you want to add to your palette.
Step 4: View Your Colour Palette
Once you're happy with your colour palette, click on 'Next' and then click on 'Open in the generator.' This is where you'll see all your colours. You'll be able to see the 6-digit hex code - these are the exact colour codes for each of your chosen colours.
Step 5: Use Your Colours on Wix and Other Design Tools
Now that you have your colours, it's time to use them on your website! To add them to your Wix colour palette, go to the Wix editor and click on the 'Design' tab. From there, click on 'Colours' and then 'Custom.' You can then add your exact hex codes for each colour.
You can also use your colours on Canva and other design tools by adding them to your swatch or colour palette. This will make it easy to use your colours consistently across all your marketing materials and branding efforts.
And that's a wrap! Now you can easily pick colours off an image, create a colour palette and add the colours to your Wix website as well as anywhere else that you need brand colours for a professional and cohesive look.
