Swatches

(点击这里阅读中文版本)

Swatches is a simple colour palette utility for getting variations on a colour.

To use Swatches, type or paste a hexadecimal colour code into the text entry, with or without a hash mark. You'll then be given two columns of colours. The left column offers changes in luminence only, while the right column gives difference in brightness.

Get it on AppCenter

Features

  • One-click copying from any of the colour swatches
  • Quickly switch between RGB and hexadecimal colour values
  • Remembers your preference for hex or rgb between uses
  • Remembers the last colour you checked when reloading the app
  • Toggle relative luminance adjustment
  • Toggle visibility of labels
