PicAnalyzer is a free and interesting app for iPhone to extract color palettes from images. For example, let’s say you like any landscape with a variety of colors, and you want those colors to be included in your design for any website, presentation, etc. In such case, you can use this app to extract all the color palettes (with RGB & Hex values) from that particular landscape and use them wherever you want. It also lets you share the color palettes from an image to the world via Facebook, Flickr, Email, WhatsApp, Twitter, and more.
Similar to the other core applications such as Pictures To Color and Image DNA, “PicAnalyzer” also shows high accuracy while extracting color palettes from any image. You can either import an image from the camera roll, or capture one using the built-in camera to get the color palettes. My favorite and the best part of this app is that it allows you to export all the color palettes (with RGB nd Hex values) to Dropbox as SVG files.
How to Extract Color Palettes from Images on iPhone:
Step 1: This app is pretty simple and easy to use. No registration or sign up is required to extract color palettes from images.
Step 2: When you open the app for the first time, you will see a “Picture” icon at the center of the main screen. After tapping the icon, it will ask you to either import an image from the camera roll or use the built-in camera to capture one instantly.
Step 3: After importing or capturing an image, simply crop the image as required and tap the choose button to proceed.
Step 4: The color palettes will be automatically extracted from the image, and can be seen at the bottom of the screen, as shown in the first screenshot.
Step 5: You can tap on the image to edit its color palettes, which means you can add and remove color palettes of the image before saving, sharing, or exporting.
Step 6: When you’re done with playing around and extracting color palettes, tap the share button to copy the hex values, share color palettes, and export color palettes to Dropbox as SVG files.
Step 7: Remember, the exported color palettes will include the RG and Hex values which you can use for your own designs.
My Final Verdict:
Honestly, I think “PicAnalyzer” is a pretty useful app for designers like you, as you can easily extract color palettes from your favorite images. You can either share or export color palettes directly to your Dropbox account and use them later for designing.
