blend two colors to get many other colors and their HEX / RGB codes

There have been a few posts on this blog about picking color codes from a pixel on your screen, which you can find here, here, here and here.

Now I want to give a quick tip, which has helped me immensely in deciding the color themes of few other blogs.

Color Blender
is a simple, yet effective webtool, where you can choose any two colors and this site blends them different proportions and provides you many options to choose from. The different output shades are as per the number chosen by you. If you choose to get 10 shades, then this tool provides you the 10 colours, alongwith their HEX / RGB codes, all equally distant from each other. You can you these colours wherever you wish.

See the example where I have obtained 10 equally spaced shades between color #FFFF00 (yellow) and #FF0000 (red).
