Explore tints and shades.

Discover colors that go well with your existing swatches. Spectrum instantly generates a matrix of complementing shades and tints using color harmony rules.

Powerful snippets and templates.

Spectrum lets you write your own snippets (for individual swatches) and templates (for entire schemes). This allows you to easily integrate Spectrum into your development workflow.

Create schemes from images.

Images are an excellent source for new color scheme inspirations. Spectrum's Photo Palette feature can automagically generate beautiful color schemes from your pictures.

Capture colors from your screen.

Use Spectrum's loupe tool to magnify any area of your screen. A single click captures the color under your cursor.

Export to popular formats.

Supported formats include ASE (for Adobe's Creative Suite apps, including Photoshop and Illustrator), CSS, Sass, PNG and CLR.
You can also define your own export format using Spectrum's templating system.

Organize your collection.

Manage your collection using Spectrum's built-in library. Tag your schemes to organize them into a searchable collection.

Sync your collection using iCloud.

Spectrum supports syncing over Apple's iCloud. Your entire palette library is synchronized across your Macs, iPhones and iPads.

Instantly visualize your color schemes.

Preview your schemes using a variety of realtime visualizations. Includes support for distraction-free fullscreen mode.

Pro-features for power users.

Spectrum has full support for color management — you can select your preferred color profile. You can also switch between the modern RGB and the traditional RYB color wheels.
