Great color capturer as it is almost equal to specifically made color calibrating /capturing tools without the high cost. It has great adjustments to adjust for color constancy issues. U can adjust the capture by adding light or dark to color. Artist need access to tools like this & not be priced out like many art supplies. Great for matching reference colors or matching specific colors on designs. One negative, I wish it had Munsell color space, but other than that it's an awesome app.

Unfortunately the paid version shows "Color Grab (Google Play)" watermarked on exported items along with "-- Sent from Color Grab App." pre typed in the message. It also pops up a message asking to rate the app & another asking to share the app. The purchase does get rid of the advert at the bottom, but I would expect the pop-ups, watermark, & pre-filled text to be gone. This is such a great & useful app otherwise. Hopefully the developer will consider these adjustments for the paid version.

Nice app. You can create palettes easily from photos. I like the instant conversions of color spaces, and the correlations to commercial paint brands. One quibble, the saved palettes don't open directly in the GIMP. However, when saved in a more portable format (png, jpg) they are still convertible, it just takes one extra step. One additional set of correlations would be standard artist pigment designations.
