This is another free program helpful to have on your desktop if you do not have it already:

I still think Colorshade wins out over this though for design work:

It looks as though Colorshade would be the more useful of the two, although I'm quite interested of the use of phi in color. Thanks for sharing these.

Colorshade is awesome. It has an eyedropper tool now which allows you to sample from your screen directly into the program. For $20 just get it!

I read this book once written by a Hungarian Architect who had researched the connection between patterns in nature, patterns in design and root harmonies in music. The golden section obviously came up. Anyway, the point is that it was amazing to see how things connect. I am sure color is no different. There is a good question for Cindy Brewer!
