Couldn't ask for more

I am not a graphic designer, but was looking for colour schemes that I liked when writing a brief for my new web site. As an absolute novice I found this very easy to use. I particularly like the photo thingy - where I imported a picture that was my inspiration for the site and the software automatically chose a colour scheme based on the photo. I was able to click on elements in the photo to tweak the colours.

It really helped (for me) the design process as I was able to tell the designer exactly what I was looking for.

Very impressed and so glad I installed.

Usefule, Functional and Very Powerful

As a designer you look for tools to assist in your creative journey. There are a volume in the market, however many often provide a painful experience that you would ranther not have whilst trying to explore design ideas. However, I discovered ColourSchemer whilst browsing for new palette ideas and immediately found its interface, color presentation and user experience very simple. This has greatly improved my design method, and is a permanant fixture to my toolkit! Great work Chromaom..

Crashes, but otherwise fantastic.

This is a great app. Has been my go-to for years. Color picker crashes the app for the last year and a half… no updates in the last few years I’ve been using this app. Worth the money if this app didn’t crash with this feature.
