Using Color Schemer with VSD

Hi ---

Another very basic (and probably stupid) question.

I've created this terrific color palette in Color Schemer, and I want to apply colors from the palette to the website I'm creating with VSD. How can I access my color palette from VSD?

I know that Color Schemer can export color palettes to be used by other programs. Do I need to export my palette in a particular format and access it using the Flash Application Tool? If so, which format should I use when exporting the color scheme? (Color Schemer offers HTML, CSS, GIF, etc).

Does VSD have a color picker? If so, maybe you can export the palette as an image, import that into VSD, and then pick the colors from the palette image as needed.

It does have a "pipette" but I think it only affects the color of a new object as it's created. But you can (assuming you can export the color scheme as an image, I haven't used that app yet) use that feature to make a temp object and read off the RGB values of the desired color. Every item in VSD has a selection for defining a custom color for it by entering the RGB values. Not as clean and convenient as a direct color picker but that would get the colors into the program, at least.

However you get the RGB values I think you're going to be entering them in by hand, except for the aforementioned object creator. If you're going to make a lot of shapes with color fills then you're golden.
