The only thing missing

The only thing missing is video and if they could do albums so I could find pics easier vs. going through all pics to find my fav ones faster:)

Such a Unique and Rad Tool

I wanted to say thank you so much to the developer of, Color Thief, for this wonderful application. I think it's truly such a unique concept and that it makes creating new filters for photos a really exciting and fun experience.

The possibilities seem endless to me with being able to add new color schemes to your photos. So many apps and games today are just straight up copies of other existing apps and games. But, with, Color Thief, I believe you've created a one-of-a-kind application and tool. Congratulations on that ingenuity and creativity, it's a rare thing today in my opinion on the App Store.

Also, I cannot stress enough how grateful and thankful I am to the app's developer for being rad and for not using disgusting in-app purchases or subscription plan garbage with this app. Developers like you are always a huge winner 🏆 in my book for not being scum and for not utilizing that crap with your apps. You're a dying breed and again I cannot tell how grateful and thankful I am to you for actually being ethical and moral in selling your wonderful application. Thanks for that and God bless.

Oh, and, any new apps you come out with, assuming you still sell them for one single price. Well, I'll be first in the proverbial line to purchase any of the new apps you release. You've got a customer for life in me if you continue to sell your apps this way. Thanks, again, and I hope you're doing great.

One of my favorites

Thank you to the developer for keeping this wonderful app updated. I live in fear that at the next Apple update it will be gone. Echoing other reviewers who also loved the app, I use it all the time. I like to design fabric patterns and it’s great for creating different colorways and coordinating new patterns but I also use it for fun, just to see what one of my drawings or photographs would look like in other color combos. I’m planning on making a handmade book based on the color blue, so you can imagine how handy this app will be to change an image to work with that theme.

I hate to ask for more features on such an easy to use app but it would be great to be able to fetch from folders. I have to scroll through tons of images now. Also, I really miss an early feature, missing now, where you could tap and trade the "host" image with the other one - if that makes sense?
