From Pixelmator to Photoshop and everywhere in-between, Mac users have plenty to brag about, and plenty of tools that are state of the art. What about color? Most Mac graphic design apps do color picking and management. Here’s one that does it standalone.
Colors For Professionals
Color pickers might be a dime a dozen. Maybe less. Maybe a few dollars more. That’s because every self-respecting graphic design app has some measure of color management built in.
Enter Colors PRO, the first full color management app for the Mac in a number of years. It’s not just a color picker, either, though it does that quite well.
Colors PRO also creates and manages colors schemes, and it’s a color palette tool with enough features to challenge ColorSchemer Studio (which is full featured but hasn’t been upgraded in a few years).
Colors PRO can analyze colors in an image or photo and generate a color scheme.
It also manages colors, schemes, palettes and lets you store them on iCloud, Dropbox and elsewhere so they’re always available no matter which Mac you’re using.
Whatever color code you speak Colors PRO knows the language– from UIColor to Java RGB to HEX.
If you’re like most of us who do graphic design or work with color on a Mac, you likely have half a dozen tools that do this or that with color– color picker, color schemes, color palettes.
Colors PRO does it all with a click.
Colors can be imported from other color management apps, and exported– PDF, HTML, Color Palette, even Adobe Swatch Exchange. And it imports ColorScheme Studio XML palettes.
Colors PRO is not available from the Mac App Store, though a lighter version is. There’s also a trial version of Colors PRO from the app developer. If color is your business you’ll like Colors or Colors PRO. It’s well done and refreshing considering that color apps don’t get updated very often.
