I was really excited to use this app. But I quickly noticed that the colors aren’t true. What I mean is I took a screen shot of one color when I brought it into the app the color wasn’t the same. It was close but not close enough. What I compared it to was an actual color swatch. Not a photograph. So the color was uniform. Bummer
I love this app! I recently started painting again after 30 years. This app has removed all the anxiety of starting up again with painting. I share this app with my fellow painting classmates. When our teacher asks us about the composition of a certain color in a painting, we use this app and immediately have a correct answer for her. The app easily shows how the color is mixed, so you also learn in the process. It’s one of the most-used apps on my iPhone and iPad.
Great app to use to mix correct parts of clay colors to get a different color. Most apps are for computer graphics. Only wish black were included to mix with white to get shades of gray. I'm not using photos yet to grab color from. Just trying out different combos for the clay just as someone would mix paint.
If I click the camera on the drop down menu, the app closes. I have to take a picture first, then go to the app to load a picture to analyze a color. I didn’t have this problem with the earlier version.
I’m extremely disappointed because the camera function doesn’t work with IOS 11. When I attempt to use it, the program quits and instantaneously puts me back on my phone’s home screen. The camera feature was the apps selling point for me. Had I known that it wasn’t functioning I would not have purchased this app.
The reason I said not bad cuz it’s good only to learn how mixing color the phone taken pic differently from the real only way it could more useful for professional work its has it came with and x- ray device
I tried to mix a pink/red shade that I use a lot in procreate so I could paint one of my digital works. After spending a long time converting the percentage into measurements so I could mix all I got was a big messy grey color. I did the exact percentage of each color, this app does not work and is a waste of money.
After you've loaded a photo and gotten a color sample, the photo is forgotten. If you want to get an additional color sample from the same photo you have to dig through your photos and load it again. It assumes you won't get more than one sample from a single photo.
The app does a good job of giving you the breakdown of colors in a swatch, but isn't useful for painters. The percentages don't give an accurate sense of how to mix a color (following the app led to lots of muddy colors).
This app is basically Shazam for colors. It allows you to get the exact make up of a color when you see it. One of the best features is the ability to sample colors from a photo to get the perfect color you are looking for. It's also super user friendly, even for not so tech-savvy people like myself.
I found this app to be very helpful when mixing colors. I agree that having the option to choose the primary colors (warm and cool of each primary) would make it even better. Well worth the small price I paid for it. Try it!
Thing ...after picking the preset color ,the wheel the scale is spaced too far apart making the color change too extreme ,instead of gradual I gave it five because this is an easy fix and it'll be great after that....
This is a must have if you want to mix colors from primaries without a lot of guess work. The only thing I think it needs is the ability to select your primary colors. I have a set of warm and cool primaries, and different people like to use different primaries when mixing. A choice of whites would also be helpful. Of course for such a tool I'd pay more too!
