Usage tips

If no colors are locked colormind will generate color palettes at random.
red palette yellow palette
If you have a specific starting color in mind, pick that color and lock it. The location of the color does matter, so experiment with different placements.
red palette 2 yellow palette 2
If you have two complementary colors, try placing them at the opposite ends of the palette. Colormind will tend to generate nice intermediate values.
red palette 3 yellow palette 3 red palette 4 yellow palette 4
If you want more variety try placing contrasting colors closer together, colormind will then tend to create triadic and other more complex color schemes.
