Excellent for a beginner painter

I’m new to painting and I purchased this app to help me identify color palettes. My favorite feature is the ability to import a photo and get a list of all of the colors from the image, that was exactly what I was looking for in an app.

I’ve also been using the live camera to scan my mixed paints to see how accurate my mixtures are for my palette.

Beautiful app

Lovely app, does a great job and looks good doing it. My only request would be to be able to export palettes as a PAL (JASC) and or GPL (Gimp) which are quite universal formats so that I can open the palette in other programs without needing a desktop app like Sip to pick the colors from the palette I created here. Exporting aside it’s a well made app and well worth the couple of dollars!

Amazing app for hopeless designers

As an engineer who admits to being hopeless at design, this app rocks. I love the camera feature, which allows you to simply point your camera at a pleasing color, which is stored and named, with complementary palettes provided to you.

If you’re terrible at design like me, you might want to check this app out!
