Stuff You Can Use: Pretty Colors
The first step in customizing a Tumblr theme is through the use of custom hex colors for accents, backgrounds, fonts, and highlights. The trial-and-error process of pinning down the right color, though, is often tedious and frustrating.
Fortunately, Tumblr’s topherchris runs Pretty Colors, a user-submitted blogbase of favorite hex colors. Each post comes captioned with the color’s exact code, enabling easy copypaste to ease your customization woes. And, in this case, Tumblr’s “Random” post finder has never been more useful.
Especially with hugely color-customizable themes like Hue or Insider, plugging and playing around with codes instead of wheel-nudging can be incredibly time-saving. Take a stroll through Pretty Colors and beautify your blog. Enjoy!
I’m honored that Pretty Colors is finally getting some of the recognition it deserves, but where is the book deal, people?
