    New release! Create themes from images and more

    Sami@Adobe Adobe Employee
      It's a new release of kuler!

      - Try color extraction, a new feature to create themes using photos and other images, with different "mood" options.
      - You've requested it, here at last: endless favorites. Save all that color goodness to Mykuler.
      - Random browsing: Try your luck and see what randomly selected themes kuler serves up.

      We've made a few other tweaks, I'll let you discover them for yourselves. Please post your feedback here; we're especially curious about color extraction and how this creative group will put it to use. Enjoy, folks!

          I was using the site yesterday. Today I can't drag palettes to the bar on the bottom. It's nice to have favorites to keep in myKuler, but I really liked that bar along the bottom too. Can we have both? In myKuler, I'd like to collect palettes into project sections. Is that possible?

            I'm so happy to see color extraction as a part of Kuler's toolset! I wonder if there's any chance that the API will include its functionality? It would be killer to be able to send a request with the image's URL, and receive the colors back. I already have an application where I'm looking to use this to skin the entire site based on the main image. It would save a lot of time, though having the ability to upload an image and save its swatch is nice, because I imagine then that would be available through the API. Still, it would be quite a nice feature!

                I love most of the features. The one thing I miss though, is having the original created dates. I have gone through and added keywords to my themes and republished them without changing the color. And just recently, I went through and republished all of my themes in an attempt to organize them a little better. So now, it looks as though I changed all my color themes in February, when in fact, I did not make any changes to them, I simply republished them in order to organize my themes. I don't mind having the "Last edited", but I do mind not having an "Originally created on".

                  Awesome, Sami! I haven't tried the site yet, but the new AIR extension is
                  great. I'll try out the site .. soon .. and give some feedback. Terrific
                  so far!

                    Sami, these new features are super super sweet! I too hope that the API will allow for interaction with images, perhaps tying a query to the API to a specific Flickr image or image set... wow. CoolerKreator2.0!
