Hi, this is Justin from Memento Press.
Have you ever been out & about, and seen a color combination you loved? Wouldn’t it be nice to capture that exact color combination to use in your own design & decor?
Adobe Kuler is an iOS app that uses your built-in camera to capture color combinations from a picture you take, into convenient 5-color swatch sets. You can then use & share those color combinations.
Above is a quick demonstration of Kuler in action – the five circles in the left photo can be moved to “eyedrop” any point on-screen. Once you click the check mark, Kuler records the exact shades from each circled spot. These recorded color definitions are called swatches. After collecting your swatches, you can edit each individual swatch to fit your need.
Colors, and even more so swatches, can convey very specific messages & feelings. So having the ability to collect and store your favorites in your pocket is a very powerful (and fun!) tool.
You can use Kuler for design inspiration like I do, or even to make a collection of swatches you love for your personal reference.
Even without experience in color theory, browsing the swatches created on Kuler is a great way to keep tabs on what the color trends are. With Kuler, you can see what “goes” with your favorite color, or even discover your new favorite color!
If you use Kuler, please share your experiences with me, I’d love to hear how you use it.
