Coleure Makes Choosing Colors Fun

Sick and tired of the same old color pickers you’ve been using for years? Want something fresh and easy to use?

Check out Coleure.com where you can find a web app color picker that allows you to simply move your cursor over large swatches to see their values in hex, sRGB, and HSL. 

Hex values can be directly copied and pasted directly into applications like Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, etc.

Or you can drag and drop a swatch into a plain text file to save all the color values.

You can click on a color to save it on the side and see how it looks on or under black or white.

And by Option/Alt clicking, you can compare two colors, and see what they’d look like as a gradient.

Furthermore, you can save your own color palettes by dragging and dropping swatches into groups.

    Thanks. I just checked out the app and it is great! Very simple, very easy to use.

    I must be missing something, but I do not understand how to get the colors from Coleur into CC. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Hi Sarah-

    If you copy the color as hex numbers from Coleure, you can paste it into the Color Picker in Photoshop, or the Color panel in Illustrator. InDesign doesn’t do hex colors by default, but there is a script you might be able to use by InTools. (it was made for CS5, so I’m not sure it’ll still work for CC): https://in-tools.com/article/scripts-blog/hexadecimal-swatches-in-indesign/

    What happened? Coleure.com seems to be down. It doesn’t display any colors and when I click on sign-up i’m redirected to a 404 page not found address. Hopefully, I can find something like this elsewhere.
