Color Picker w/ Colorblindness Settings

On my CAPTCHA Images post, Patrick Santry mentioned he ran into one he couldn’t decipher due to his colorblindness.  I’m also colorblind, but have yet to hit one I couldn’t figure out, and that may be due to luck, or varying degrees of colorblindness.  I do, however, master a website I can barely read.  It was designed by women (and targeted mainly for women), who claim they have no problems whatsoever.  Its frustrating for me, especially since I’m “in charge“ of the thing.

Color blindness affects about 15% of the overall population, nearly all of whom are males (sex linked trait–I’ll explain it in another post if you ned me to).  When choosing colors for a website, especially one where you’re likely to have a large numebr of male visitors, color selection can be important.  My favorite color picker allows you to choose web safe colors that take into account colorblindness.
