My company has a color scheme consisting of 3 colors. In RGB:

  • Blue: 25 176 230
  • Green: 180 213 83
  • Gray: 129 130 133

(Please don't judge the choice of colors, they are not my choice!)

I need to create a full color palette for use in charts in excel. When defining a color palette in excel it require 6 color accents to be defined (from which it makes extra shades)

Is there a tool that can extrapolate the 3 colors above to give me another 3 I can use in the theme that will work with charts etc. The idea being that slices of a pie chart are distinguishable from each other (ie v similar colors are not next to each other)?

I basically have trouble choosing the remaining 3 colors for the palette.

Adobe Kuler may help you. It is designed to create color palettes. You may at the least get some ideas from it. –  pritaeas Nov 26 '12 at 13:17

@Dave: good question, didn't even notice it. Added now. –  pritaeas Nov 26 '12 at 14:09
    
"have trouble" - is that because you don't have the 'design flair' to choose a 'complimentary' set of colours or because having selected a colour you are not sure of its RGB content? –  pnuts Nov 26 '12 at 16:20
