A great App…One of a Kind! A Must have for designers! - I LOVE this app. I wish it was a standalone photoshop plugin, though. I want to use it on video, on batches of files…on EVERYTHING! This app is a no brainer at $50 for photoshop/after effects…and I'm not the only one who will think so! For now, I use it daily on iPhone/ipad/macbook…really, there is nothing like it.

Review by Karen W

LIFE/TIME Saver - I take photos of clothing for a website and the camera on my 6 Plus was so good I ditched my Nikon - in particular (in regards to the 6+) I was totally psyched about the color accuracy I was getting - my level of psych quickly faded because when I upgraded to IOS 8.1.2 that color accuracy seemed to disappear. Photos were now ridiculously off (oversaturated, etc.) and it wasn’t a lighting or white balance issue . . . Apple in their infinite wisdom won’t let me roll back to the earlier version of IOS 8 that worked well for me but at least I stumbled across this gem. Normally I at least take a photo of the front, side and back of a garment so while I still have to muck around in Elements to get the main (front) photo correct when I do manage that I simply drop the main photo on to Color Thief and drag the photos of the side and back of the piece of clothing and within a second all of the photos are synced up in terms of color/tone. THANK YOU Yellow Cedar Soft - best $10 I’ve spent in awhile.
