    I started playing around with this a bit and really like it! Pete, I’m not sure exactly when you recorded this class, but I noticed, that Photoshop now syncs with the website. So if you have the Adobe “Kuler” panel installed in photoshop (Now called Adobe Color), when you click on “My Themes,” your themes are automatically synced from the website and vice versa. Really cool tool to have

    Thanks Pete. I didn’t know this feature existed in Photoshop. The latest CC version has the option of creating and saving your own colour themes inside the application.
