Title: color palette generator for photoshop.
Post by: TheBadger on February 13, 2013, 01:55:41 pm
Hey guys

I am trying to find a plug-in for photoshop that i saw once but cant find now.

Basically you load an image, and the software creates a color palette swatch from the image. So you could load a painting from the 18th century and have all of that artists colors in one place.

Have any of you see this or something like I described? Sorry I cant remember anything more than I already said. It was a long time ago when I read about it.

OH! I guess photoshop does this on its own without any plug-ins! Ha ha, I really should have known that!
Here are instructions if anyone else wants to make use of it. : http://www.sitepoint.com/make-swatches-from-photos-in-photoshop/

And I found this too, which is a plugin, and looks pretty helpful! There are several of this kind, scroll down and see if you want any of em' :

QuoteGet palette from image
from your link.
I think thats the right wording for what I was looking for. I guess I would still like to see a plug-in for this if you or anyone else happens by one. Plug-ins are usually a lot more robust than native photoshop functions. Then again, they are often pretty worthless too.

Never hurts to have a look though.

The best I have found is the one produced by Adobe. You can import and save the scheme in to your creative cloud account, and use with various apps with ease.
