As a color lover, and even a color nerd, I am always finding apps out there that excite my interest. I love color both as a designer and photographer and there are a number of Mac apps out there that are made with these interests in mind.
These apps run the gamut from developer’s color tools to color scheme generators to apps that make the color in photographs more exciting. There is even a bonus game included in the round-up. Read on to find out more about these fun apps for color lovers.
I’m pleased to announce that the winners of our ColorSchemer Studio competition are:
- Thor Adam
- Greg Pipkin
- Tyago Neres
Thanks for taking part, and we’ll be in touch with your license code shortly!
Old Competition Post
We have another great competition for you this week, offering the chance to win one of five licenses for the excellent ColorSchemer Studio!
ColorSchemer Studio makes it fun, fast and easy to find the perfect palette for your next creative project. Whether you’re designing a web site, magazine layout, picking wedding colors, or painting your living room, get your colors right the first time with ColorSchemer Studio.
It’s a really versatile piece of software, and one that we reviewed last year. ColorSchemer is well designed, fun to use, and it takes the anxiety out of coming up with effective and professional color combinations.
Entering the competition is really easy. All you need to do is leave a comment below, letting us know what you’d like to design a colour scheme for!
The competition will run for one week, and I’ll pick five winning comments at random on Thursday, 31st March. Best of luck, and why not take a look at ColorSchemer Studio on the Mac App Store while you wait for the results?
The results are in, and I’m pleased to let you know that we’ll be sending a license to the following three commenters:

If you’re a designer, working with colour is a daily task. Sometimes it can be a real pleasure, but on other occasions a piece of software to help would be much appreciated! Last week we reviewed ColorSchemer Studio 2, a great app for coming up with effective and professional color combinations.
I’m pleased to announce that we have three full licenses to give away to a few lucky readers. Entering is really simple – all you need to do is leave a comment, letting us know which feature in ColorSchemer 2 is your favourite. To find out what’s included in the new version, just head over to the ColorSchemer website and take a look at the range of features on offer.
Best of luck, and we’ll be announcing the winners on Monday 18th January!
Let me say right at the outset that I’m not an obvious choice for reviewing this application. I’m not a designer, and I don’t currently work on maintaining any websites; I have little use of software for working out effective color schemes in my day-to-day life and work. These facts might make me either entirely the wrong person to assess ColorSchemer Studio 2, or just the right guy.
I used to be involved in running the website of a big local authority, and I have seen first-hand the damage that can be done by untrained eyes when the thought arises “Wouldn’t it be nice just to add a little splash of color to this page?” With ColorSchemer, this needn’t be such a big problem any more.
This is a really clever app that simplifies the work of coming up with effective and attractive color combinations for websites or any screen design work. You don’t need to be a professional designer to appreciate its great features or to find it useful whenever you do need to work with colors.
