Hi, Alexandra Cianciara! Personally, I'm a fan of the color picking tools at Adobe's website color.adobe.com. Besides making your own color palette by hand, you can also click the "Explore" tab and view popular color themes designed by others. You can even drag and drop a picture into it to get a color theme that goes along well with that picture!

I highly recommend giving it a try! :sparkles:

In addition to adobe's color site, I like to use https://coolors.co/ which is great if you have zero starting point and want inspiration and https://www.canva.com/color-palette/ if you're working with a hero image or images in general.
