Color Thief for iOS App Review
Once again we are subjected to yet another photo editing application to add to the many millions of others flooding the App Store but it seems there are still areas to explore in this subject because, not only do people keep on making them but they also seem to be able to come up with new ideas for them and so it is still worth checking out the new ones that pop up, even if there is a risk of ending up with something we have seen a million times before. Fortunately this particular one is a bit more original and innovative so if you are looking for another way to manipulate your photos, this may be worth a few minutes of your time. Color Thief is available now for iOS from the App Store for just $1.99.
Color Thief is a rather basic photo editing app that only really has one primary function but it is quite an original one that is surprisingly fun to play around with. As the name suggests, it does indeed involve stealing colors and the results can be garish or beautiful, depending on what you steal or where you put it. This is one for people interested in experimenting with colors and it is very easy to use. The app allows you to select two images, one you wish to change and one you will use to change it. The main image sits at the top of the screen while the one with the transferable colors sits below it. With your selections made, the app then transfers the color scheme from the bottom picture to the top picture, often with fascinating results. That’s all it does on the surface but it does allow you to come up with some very creative imagery and you can spend a lot of time trying out different combinations to see what comes out.
How you use it is entirely up to you but there are a surprising amount of possibilities and you can discover some truly fascinating color schemes you may never have thought of previously. I found that a great use for it was to take the colors from one picture and apply it to several others, which resulted in a series of unrelated pictures that all matched each other in terms of color and tone. With this in mind, it is great for collages. As is always the case with this type of app, it is very easy to share your work and flaunt it across various social networks like Facebook and Twitter, while it can also be exported to other apps for further manipulation if you so desire.
Many will find this pointless but if you are looking for a new way to experiment artistically with images then Color Thief is a great choice. It is cheap, easy to use and fun to play around with. The results can vary but this is all part of the fun and if you really go for it you can come up with some great images. Well worth a look.
