ColorTools

 create a number of nearby colors with hues spaced across the whole color wheel

 Calling Sequence EvenSpread(color, number)

Parameters

 color - color format recognized by ColorTools number - positive integer; number of colors to return

Description

 • The command EvenSpread generates a list of evenly spaced colors across the whole HSV color wheel. The input color will be included in the middle of the list.
 • If color is a shade of gray, then the empty list is returned.
