Still, if press I’d have to say Color Code, #25, is my favorite, given the ability to move your mouse to generate colors and simply click to save them to the screen. It barely edges out Color by Hail Pixel, simply because it doesn’t assume you want a certain number of colors. That said, neither tool is good for automated color matching; for that, I prefer Palleton. What’s your favorite color palette generator tool? Let me know in the comments!
