Color FInder is designed to isolate specific colors in a photo or image. It is perfect for quilters or knitters trying to match a color in a photo. Once an image or a photo has been selected, you can click anywhere in the photo to select colors to build a palette.
Once you have selected a palette, you can see the palette on a separate page. The background color of this page can be changed and the spacing between the tiles can be removed using the Options shown to the left.
You can also click the Colors button to see all the colors in the image. Drag colors from the top list to the palette to add to the palette. Drag tiles up from the palette to remove them. Right tap a palette tile to locate the color or its closest match in the color array. You can also drag the palette tiles to re-arrange the order of the tiles.
You can click on a tile to see a full screen tile for easy color matching. You can also use Windows 8 sharing to share the palette or this tile. The HTML color number is also shown for use in other programs.
The paid version of the program removes the ads and allows you to save your work in projects that can be recalled and edited.
If you find that there are too many similar colors shown, then you can adjust the number of colors by changing the All Colors - Less Colors slider.
