We’ve worked hard to create our color palettes. The next step now is to show you how to save it because I’ve done this mistake before I’ve created my color palette and I forgot to save it. And to replicate these colors can be really, really difficult because obviously you’d have gone through a process of fine tuning them.
And to remember all those, hexadecimal values for your colors is pretty much impossible. Once you’ve created your color palette, then the next step is to save it and export it. Here we are on coolors.co. I mentioned earlier on that I have an account here. If you have, an account, what you can do is you can just come over here and save the pallet.
I’m going to call this web design masterclass. If you want to add some tags, you can add your tag over here, but, I’m pretty much okay with that. I’m going to save this now. This is not going to be saved in my profile. If I come over here to my account. Then you can see, I have it here as web design masterclass.
Now another way of saving this, just in case you don’t have an account is to come over here and export it. To export this, you can just come over here and there are several ways you can export it. What I normally do is I use two ways. I export the PDF. You can just click here, give it a title and then export it.
And here it is. When I click on it, it shows all my colors. And all the hexadecimal values. This will be the hexadecimal value of the color. This is the file that you want to share with a graphic designer or someone that is working on, any sort of design for your website. These are the colors does that you need to use pretty much across anything that you create.
It could be a physical items. It could be, let’s say social media platforms, presentation slides. And so on because consistency throughout your brand is going to be very, very important. Okay. So that’s one way of exporting it. Another way is to come over here. And export it as an image. You can also export this as a CSS file, or you can just copy the URL.
And this is the URL that you can share, pretty much with your designer, but having this stored very safe is very important because if you lose this, like I said, in the beginning of the video is going to be very hard for you to replicate all these colors because you can’t remember them visually. And this is the best way to do it.
In the next video, we’re going to be talking about how to set up your website, both on your local machine or even on your web hosting account. See you in the next video.
