Color encyclopedia : Information and conversion.

ColorHexa.com is a free color tool providing information about any color. Just type any color values (view full list here) in the search field and ColorHexa will offer a detailed description and automatically convert it to its equivalent value in Hexadecimal, Binary, RGB, CMYK, HSL, HSV, CIE-Lab, Hunter-Lab, CIE-Luv, CIE-LCH, XYZ and xyY. ColorHexa will also generate matching color schemes such as complementary, split complementary, analogous, triadic, tetradic and monochromatic colors.

One thing that I really like about this site is that what ever color you search there is an “in action” section that gives you snippets of code for HTML and CSS For uses of the color you searched.

Two new WP themes

Two new Premium Themes have been created by Takashi Irie on WordPress.com

To read the post written by WordPress.com follow this link -> New Themes: Duet and ThemeMin

1. Duet

Out of the two new theme I really like this one and how well the layout looks.

Duet is tailored for writers, journalists, and business bloggers. Meticulously crafted and refined options provide you with the power to effortlessly customize your theme. Choose and mix from ten accent fonts, and five body fonts to discover the perfect typographic style for your website. You can also upload a custom logo image to put your own personal stamp on your blog.
With a flexible featured slider, your readers have no chance to miss your important posts. Duet comes with more great features, so be sure to read about it on the showcase page.
Next up is ThemeMin, designed by Themify.

 

2. ThemeMin

ThemeMin is a minimal, light-weight, and fast-loading theme that focuses on typography. Together, all of these elements help to provide a comfortable reading experience. ThemeMin comes with a featured posts carousel on the front page. Plus, you can mix and match between five color schemes, three site layout options, and two post layout options until you find a combination that hits the spot for your blog. Go find more about the theme on its showcase page.

I hope this post was helpful.

These themes enable you to showcase some of your older but important blog posts that might have otherwise have gotten lost down the blogroll. These two themes display your important posts with style.

iTheme2

“iTheme2′s beautiful Apple-inspired design makes it the perfect theme for technology and Mac related blogs but it also has some really neat features – like a custom header image, custom background, alternate color schemes, and a really neat featured post carousel – that make it perfect for almost any blog.”

This theme is a free theme for those who have a blog with WordPress.com.
