App Review – Color Thief

Today’s App Review is Color Thief by Yellow Cedar Software.

When I got my first iOS device I was amazed at how simple it is to edit photos through Apps compared to all the years I had been using Photoshop. However, after what I would say is 20+ photo editing App downloads I am not easily impressed any more by new ones which in a lot of cases are almost replicas of what I already have. This App is definitely a must have though. I absolutely love it!

The App literally takes two photos and steals the color from one applying it to the other. It is a cool and fun way to edit photos and does something which is not normally very easy to do. Many Apps offer tints, hues and masks but this one color matches.

The App comes with a few sample images that you can match the color from but will also use photos from your camera roll. The design of the App is very simple to use. There are two different sliders and you just find the top image you want and then the bottom image. By default the bottom images color is applied to the top image but it is possible to switch this around by simply clicking an arrow.

This App is certainly very different and I have had a lot of fun with it so far. It costs €1.79 but is definitely worth it. Computer based software to do the same effects costs several times more.
