    Color Wheel Program ??

    I'm looking for a simple program, you can view the wheels as well as select colors in the wheel and also how one color plus one color turns into another color. I hope someone knows of one, that display the Subtractive Color Wheel, Additive Color Wheel, as well as Complimentary colors.

    Thank You.

    SiberianHuskey, it's not free but ColorSchemer Studio is amazing for color scheme building like what you mentioned, I've been using it for the last 2 years and it's one of the few programs I would happily promote... and I use it on a daily basis.

    Other than that if you want something free, ColorZilla for Firefox is pretty good too

    Interesting, so within the program you use, you can choose those wheels I've mentioned and do your own color mixing or find out what red & green would make ? Color Schemer seems much better

    Yea, ColorSchemer Studio allows you to blend color's, find relative colors, complimentaries and mess around with shades and tints too

    I like and use
    ColorImpact - Color Scheme Designer by Tiger Color

    From their website:
    "
    Just select the main color, and the visual color wheel instantly displays a selection of perfectly matching colors. You can then try different color harmonies, add shades and tints and fine tune your color scheme to perfection. "

    A no-frills, freeware color tool. When you're stuck, this handy little tool gives you contrast colors or similar color chips.

    These are all excellent, but what about a simple program that just shows me three wheels, subtractive, additive color wheel and the complementary colors. And I when I select two colors it show me what color that makes ? As well as for a added bonus gives me a little detail about the color mix.

    And of course you could use a Pantone colour swatch and your eye?

    True, but I want to understand, deeper.
