When designing we have to think about the goals of our project, the audience and what we want them to feel when seeing our design. Among all areas of a design project, color selection is one of the most important. They can make our design look cold, warm, retro, futuristc, vintage, etc. Because of that a good color scheme can make your work look much more professional.

In the Mod is a very nice AIR application. It allows us to drag images and create color palettes from them. Also, you will be able to save these colors directly to Illustrator and Photoshop.

With the recent release of Adobe® Air™ and Adobe SwitchBoard, we now have the capability of connecting the dots between stand-alone Air applications, the internet and Adobe's Creative Suite 3. As a result, Kelvin Luck – the creator of Flashr: the ActionScript Flickr API wrapper – and Dr. Woohoo introduce three new color tools to create instant palettes that: Search Flickr. Capture images with your WebCam. Or drag-n-drop images from your computer. Just click a magic button, and the colors are saved to Illustrator, Photoshop CS3 or as an XML file for Processing.

The new editions of In The Mod allow digital artists and designers to create instant color palettes of one-to-thousands of colors from a variety of sources — Flickr, your WebCam, images on your computer, or choose from a collection of (in)famous paintings — to use in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator CS3 or Processing.

For more information check out the In The Mod website at http://inthemod.com/. Also we have 2 licenses for In The Mod to giveway, just leave an email and next week we will announce the winners.
