The 'Pantone Studio' App Digitally Breaks Down Real-World Colors

The eyedropper tool in software programs like Adobe Photoshop is a convenient way to grab colors from the digital world, so paint company Pantone has decided to bring that tool into the real world with its 'Pantone Studio' app. The app, built for interior designers, lets users take photos and then proceeds to dissect their color breakdown.

The color picker delivers colors in RGB, CMYK, and Hex readouts. By translating real-world colors into these digital readouts, Pantone Studio can send that info to the Adobe suite, including Photoshop, for use in a digital design project.

Beyond simply analyzing colors, the app provides active design advice. It will suggest color harmonies to go with the colors that a user picked, and it can create a color palette based on multiple colors in an image.
