A wonderful gem

As a web designer, I use a few web apps dependent on the Apple color picker. Apple did a great job, but third parties have extended the app so it is totally dialed in.

This app can convert Adobe swatch libraries (or many others) to be able to be imported into Apple’s color picker. So need Pantone color swatches? This is the app that will do it. Maybe there are other options out there but I have spent a lot of time trying to find them and failed until I found this. This works for me and is an indispensable tool managing colors.

This actually works!

I have used a variety of command line tools that I’ve found on GitHub and they all seem to do the translations poorly, or not work at all. This one actually works. I have palettes that I have create in Adobe and would also like to use in Mac apps. This works exactly like it should. Easy drag and drop of .ase files creates an accurate .clr. Hallelujah!

Five Star

The Mac color picker can be inscrutable for a power user. This tool makes life so much easier when working with decks in Keynote, documents in Pages, etc. Such a useful utility for so many uses.
