Oh my gosh, I just found the coolest thing in a magazine, if you go to www.letschipit.com you can upload a photo and it will create a color palette using the colors in your photo. This is probably old news but I tested it out with a photo and it was so awesome. Yeah it is the little things that get me so excited lol. Just thought I would share.
Here is the photo I uploaded and the palette that goes with it http://letschipit.com/Chip/PaJmo1?ow=1
