Colordrop is the best way to learn about the colors around you. Extract colors from your photos to get detailed information like tints, shades and complementary colors.

"If you work with color, this is definitely worth checking out." – Dave Mark, The Loop

Colordrop is available on Apple Watch too, allowing you to explore your saved colors right on your wrist.

Easily extract colors from photos and images in your Photo Library, taken using your device's camera, or from Adobe Creative Cloud. Use the Color Loupe to quickly preview colors before you extract them. If you can't find the color you want, you can add it manually by typing a color code.

You can also extract colors using the Colordrop extension, available in apps that can share photos.

Get an overview of your saved colors with the Extracted Colors list. Then, tap to dive in and learn more about a specific color. View tints, shades, RGB composition, alternative color spaces, triadic and tetradic colors, and more. Plus, you can view all of your extracted colors on your wrist with Colordrop on Apple Watch.

Export color information to a PDF so you can print, or, share details via AirDrop, email and more. You can also copy codes easily.

Colordrop brings the world of color to your fingertips. It's the most detailed color analysis app available on iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch!

Capture, inspect and share colors to help you design, decorate, collaborate and learn. Start using Colordrop today.
