Customer Reviews


I was using Color Schemer which had SO MANY issues, now Color Schemer is no longer supported and I was worried that I would not find another program that did what Color Schemer did. But Spectrum is an amazing product and I’m glad I found it. It works as needed and has a good amount of color profiles to switch between.


I had written when I first reviewed this that the eyedropper wasn't working with a two monitor setup in Yosemite. This seems to have changed in later versions of Yosemite without the app changing. The bug may have been Apple's! This is good!
