Color Picker - camera app
« on: June 14, 2013, 03:18:02 am »
The idea is to take a colour with the camera, and display the colour code of it.
Display in RGB, CMYK, Pantone, etc.

Let save that colour, with a short note (like sisters kitchen wall) and let see more colours next to it.
Let select a saved colour or a pick, and show it on a colour chart. Let see similar colours, and harmonizing colours to it to choose from, tell those colours codes too.

Target:
Graphic design, web design, paint selection, etc.

In use:
-You see a nice colour combination in a magazine, pick it, then save the code, later you can use it in your webdesign.
-Take a colour pick in the paint shop you like, then compare them. Show the colours you liked to others. Show what colours you want to buy, or compare with printed colour charts.

It does not need the whole picture from the camera. Could recognize average colour of a selection from the image, or let only use a small rectangle. Two options for focus (do or don't), maybe defocusing helps to capture average of the colour. The image do not need to be stored.

For creative jobs it could be colourful! :-)
What do You think?
