Adobe opens Kuler API

Adobe Systems invites outsiders to sample color combinations supplied by users of the company's Kuler service.

Kuler lets users create and rate color schemes. Adobe

I missed this tidbit while out on vacation earlier this month, but I figured there still might be some interest among folks who want to revamp their Web sites with an ever-changing palette of user-supplied color schemes: Adobe Systems has opened the interface to its Kuler service.

Kuler is a collection of more than 19,000 user-supplied and user-ranked color schemes , each combining five colors. Adobe has made RSS feeds available that cover the highest rated, most popular and newest schemes at the site.

"We're excited to see what you come up with, and we plan to feature the best applications in a Showcase Gallery on Adobe Labs," Adobe said in a blog entry.
