Color Explorer • Import colors from image.

Have you ever wanted to get a list of all colors in a digital photo or image?  Well, with Color Explorer you can do just that!  This online tool will analyze a photo and pull out the colors in it in both RGB and HEX values.  You can customize the granularity of analysis and retrieve up to 50 colors per image, and 5 different degrees of refinement.

This tool is perfect for anyone who’s ever taken a picture of a gorgeous sunset and wondered what exact values of purple, pink, and orange to use when recreating that stunning sunset digitally.  Another use for this tool is to find complimentary colors as they exist in nature.  Let’s say you have a gorgeous photo of a tropical butterfly and want to echo it’s colors in your home decor — look no further than Color Explorer to help you nail down the exact color makeup and help add to the color feng shui of your dwelling.

I highly recommend checking out for your image color analysis needs.
