Color Thief app review


Color Thief

Price: $1.99

Color Thief by Yellow Cedar Software, Inc. is an app that lets you transfer the colors from one photo to another. It’s on sale right now for just $0.99, so get it fast; we don’t know how long this sale will last.

With this app, you can transfer the tone of old photos to new photos, or the other way around. You can use photos from your own Camera Roll as color filters to harmonize a group of photos for collages and other presentations.

It’s easy and fun to use; discover all-new color combinations as you play around!

Your results are saved at the original resolution. Once you’ve perfected your work, save it and share to Twitter, email, Instagram, or Facebook. You can also print them, of course. You must have iOS 6 for Facebook integration.

Color Thief was updated to Version 1.1 on January 17, 2013. The update got rid of some bugs and made the app faster. The app has a total of 12 customer ratings with an average of five out of five stars.

I think this app is nothing short of spectacular. It has one purpose and it does it well. The ability to manipulate colors so easily is definitely a great trick for any photographer – amateur or pro – to have. Check it out while it’s on sale!

For: iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad with iOS 5.1 or later
