Then the boxes below are where you will need to select the colors that you want to use. After selecting the colors that you want to use, you will need to go through the CSS code and change the colors using the hex code of the colors you chose. Simply, copy the codes from the four color boxes and paste the code in the CSS code. Paste it where you want it.
You can see a preview of the color scheme that you are creating in the preview box by clicking the Update button. Once you have the color scheme the way you want it, you can click the Create Scheme button. Once the page reloads, you will see the color scheme that you created in the top box.
