Pictaculous takes an image of your choice and generates a selection of colour palettes based off of it. With a simple upload you can turn a design-inspiring image into a functional design palette.
Pictaculous creates a primary palette made out of colours directly extracted from the image, the large one shown above the image in the screenshot here. By tapping into the design site ColourLovers and its archive of user-created palettes, it suggests five related colour palettes for your consideration.
You can use the colour codes provided to add the colour to your favourite design application or you can download it right into Adobe products by grabbing the Adobe Swatch File of the palette you’ve just created.
