Tips & Tricks

Capturing colors in Colordrop is designed to be quick and simple. Check out these tips and tricks for getting the most out of the app, and learn about some lesser known features.

Customize your Colordrop

Colordrop presents a wide range of color information, some of which you may not be interested in. For instance, print designers will be more interested in CMYK than RGB, while painters may prefer complementary colors over the specific color space values. To this end, it is possible to customize the color data shown.

To get started, go to Settings, located in the More tab. Then tap on the Choose Color Data option. You will be presented with a list of available color data.

A checkmark indicates that the specified color data will be shown when inspecting a color. Simply tap to toggle on or off that data.

By default, not all color data is enabled, however, most people will find that the information they need is already enabled in Colordrop. We are always working on adding new data, so if there is a feature you would like to be included, please contact us.

Some color data you'll see, such as Accessibility and Metadata, can't be hidden.

Sort your colors

By default, your saved colors are listed by newest first. To change this, go to Settings, located in the More tab, and tap on Color Sort Type. From there, you can then choose to sort by Newest First, Oldest First, or in Alphabetical order.
