Tools to help you choose a color palette

For many of my clients, deciding and choosing a color palette is often the most difficult part of the web design process. Which is understandable, because the color is the first thing most people will notice when they open a website and first impressions should be good impressions. If you are having trouble coming up with a color palette, have no fear because we are living in an age where apps and tools are available for every need, including color help.
