I find myself using this new feature in Illustrator CS4 all the time when coming up with my cartographic palettes.

As an alternative to ColorBrewer, Give this a try!

Select the menu Edit/ Edit Colors/ Recolor Artwork to discover a plethora of features.

In the Edit tab you can change the brightness, hue and many other aspects of several selected objects at once. It also allows you to create color harmonies with a color wheel besides other great features.

In the Assign tab you can recolor your entire job with a new set of colors using the color groups functions.

"There is much beauty that we fail to see through our own eyes teeming with life forms that give us that perception of our reality.  Leaves on the trees blowing gently in the wind, or scarily, the waves pounding through high surf, or lightly on a warm summer’s day; that opportunity to sit or swim in the water on a white beach.   That comfort to shout, “The universal conscious do you hear me?  I am alive, guide me dear logos towards the path of rightnesses.”  Earned what has been kept, no longer to be absorbed into a life filled with cold damn winds and  that stubborn fog clouding  my vision with nothing but darkness."
