Palette Creator is a Free color palette generator to generate color palette from any image. This tool is actually a Chrome extension. Instead of showing you a default color palette or picking a color from webpage to add in the color palette, which many other similar Chrome extensions do, it generates a color palette from any online image. So, the color palette will include only those colors that are available in the selected image.
You can also choose how many colors (8, 16, 24, 32, or custom) you want in your color palette. When the color palette is generated, you can see the colors associated with the image and hexadecimal code for each individual color. You can copy a particular hex code or copy all the color codes in a single click.
Apart from showing you HEX values of colors, you can also switch to view RGB values, Lab color space, XYZ color space, LCH, CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black) color space, HSL, HWK, and HSV values. So, this Chrome extension has some fantastic features, which other tools or extensions rarely have.
