Colour theory is something that has been drilled into our heads as designers, artists and photographers - but it’s often harder to get right in practice than you’d think. If you’ve been looking for help to make your images pop, Adobe CC Color Panel - known as Kuler in older versions - is a great Photoshop tool from Adobe which gives you access to a list of complementary, analogous, triad or compound colour schemes, saving you time in the process.

In this tutorial, we’ll look at how you can use Adobe’s Color Panel add-on in Photoshop CC 2014 - or Photoshop CS6 or CC’s Kuler panel - to recolour clashing elements and harmonise the overall colour scheme of an image.

The Adobe Color Panel is also available as a free iPhone app for those wanting to create on the go. You can even create your own colour schemes by taking colours direct from your photos.
