Adobe Color Update Adds Tools to Bring Accessibility Directly into Color Creation

In celebration of World Accessibility Day, Adobe has released new updates for Adobe Color to help designers create visually accessible color themes for use in their artwork and designs. Adobe Color is a web app and creative community where you and other artists can create and share color themes and inspiration.

A new Accessible Color Wheel enables designers to check their color themes for three types of color blindness - Deuteranopia, Protanopia and Tritanopia - by providing a simulated view of how their theme will appear to those affected by each type. Problematic color combinations are flagged by conflict lines, which highlight which swatches may be indistinguishable to someone with color blindness. This allows designers to create color palettes with five swatches that are distinct from each other for their entire audience.
