Free color wheel download

I like to have a color / colour wheel image on my desktop that I can can open whenever I am designing. I tend to use Creative Curio’s wheel but I also like the wheel in Veerle’s Color Angels presentation.

However, sometimes I want a wheel that I can edit by changing the hues or blocking out some colors so I can use the wheel in presentations to clients or colleagues.

After much googling I couldn’t find any PSD or AI color wheels so I made them myself and here they are for you to download.


In the PSD each segment of the wheel is a shape layer so you can change the hues with ease. I have included labels for each of the hue, tint, tone and shade areas. There are also layer styles which you can easily switch on for blocking out colors.

The AI has each segment as a separate shape and the labels are also included for each of the hue, tint, tone and shade areas.

    Ilove this free color wheel and use it often. I would like to include it in my blog as a reference for my readers, with credit to you, if that is ok.
    Thank you!

    I shall use this with my Art students in post earthquake ravaged Christchurch, New Zealand. Resources that are shared like these save hours in time taken to recreate lost ones. Many Thanks.
