This is a great app! Most accurate detection with Samsung S7: Set the S7 screen mode to "Basic" for sRGB compliance (Settings-Display-Screen Mode). Use the white reference function ("balance" icon lower left), indoor (i.e., not direct) sunlight, with the sun option chosen on the right for white balance (not "auto", not "cloudy" - the idea is to choose the option that already gives the white reference the least tint, live on the screen). Don't look at the automatically generated name to decide if the color was detected correctly before capturing. It might say "20% Grey" or just "Black" but it will have captured e.g., a very dark green. Check by enlarging the colour on the screen and comparing.
Brilliantly done. It was extremely easy to add my acrylics, sort them by hue and label them with the manufacturer, product line and color name. I was able to capture the paint colors (wet) through the clear portion of the tube and only had to make minor corrections with the Tune feature. Next I painted an array of small squares and captured the dry color of each paint. Now I can mix my paints by volumetric recipes to give the dry color I need with very reasonable results. It isn't always perfect and colors mixed from paints with extreme differences in pigment density or color saturation can take a little adjustment but in most cases the difference isn't worth mentioning unless I'm trying to match a specific color to a high degree of accuracy. Then once I get the color match I need with a little adjustment I have a reference for mixing that color and don't have to fuss to mix the same color again.
I really wanted to love this app as I have red-green colour vision deficiency. Needed custom white balance to be dependable but the implementation is weird. Have to always include white target in the frame for it to work. This is awkward. Should just be a way of setting and locking the WB for subsequent colour sampling.
Used for creating a palette of colors based on one picked either from an existing image in one''s gallery, or a new pic from a snapshot. A manual for the app would help; it's not the most intuitive. Not clear how its themes are picked from the color wheel.
Excellent app! I'm no expert or designer but it's intuitive, useful and quick. Doesn't take up much space either. Lots of fun things to do.
I love it! I just wish I could do mixing and matching and coupling with colours that I don't have a sample of...like really just be able to see which colour would go with which dress kind of thing, or can we dp that already and I don't know how? There are lots of functions
