Spectrum is an app for easily and intuitively creating beautiful color schemes.

Inspired by the principles of color theory, Spectrum allows you to:

  • Create aesthetically pleasing color schemes based on harmony rules
  • Explore tints and shades for colors in your palette
  • Automatically generate color schemes from images
  • Preview your color schemes using a variety of visualizations
  • Capture colors from your screen using the built-in color picking tool
  • Organize your collection of color schemes into a searchable database
  • Import and Export your color schemes as CSS, PNG and ASE files
  • Switch between two color wheel modes - perceptual and uniform
  • Compose schemes using your preferred color profile
