Capture Colors

Extract colors from your photos by skimming over them with your finger. You can open a photo from your Photo Library, take one with the camera, import from your Adobe Creative Cloud libraries, or paste from the clipboard.

Use the Extract tab or app extension to extract colors from photos. The Color Loupe shows you a preview of the color you're skimming over, as well as its RGB values and color code.

Easily import colors using the .Colordrop file format; or open a photo, Photoshop file (PSD), or color from Creative Cloud. You can even extract individual PSD layers on iPad.

Save colors manually to Colordrop by typing in a color code. You'll see a handy preview of the color, and, you can also use Handoff to save the color on a different device.
