Do You See What I See?

Maybe not. Especially if you're colorblind.

Color + Design Blog has a great tool to see how your website looks to someone else's eyes. As that blog notes, "In the U.S. 7% of the male population – or about 10.5 million men – and 0.4% of the female population either cannot distinguish red from green, or see red and green differently." The direct link is for the Colorblind Web Page Filter, but read the whole post at Color + Design.

Thanks to American Libraries Direct for the link.

I know about dogs being colorblind, but I had no idea about the percentages of people being colorblind. Very interesting fact I came across lately was a dog (who is colorblind) and who is an author! His book is funny, cute, and has great pictures. Ghostwritten by Kim Pearson, Dog Park Diary is definitely a great book.
