Designers and artists often find it helpful to build a
combination of colors into a palette which they can then use in any
of a wide number of Graphic Arts programs (such as those which
comprise Adobe's Creative Suites).
Palettes created in Kuler can be downloaded to your desktop
as an .ase file (meaning an Adobe Swatch Exchange file).
That Swatch Exchange file, and its swatches, can then be
opened and used in Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and a number of
other programs so that colors can be synchronized throughout all
the components of a multi-facetted design project..
To add to Ann's description, the kuler team is really
enjoying the various ways people are using kuler. Besides the
print/web design uses, we've heard about people using it for
interior decorating, planning their wedding colors, designing
dashboards, all sorts of crafts such as knitting, and just
exploring colors. See
