Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday have passed, it’s time for a more colorful made-up holiday: Huesday! And what better way to start your Huesday than with the brand new ColorSchemer Studio 2 for your Mac!
ColorSchemer Studio 2 takes color matching and management to a new level with a number of advanced new features and tools, including:
One of the most common feature requests we get is for adding CMYK support, and now ColorSchemer Studio 2 has it!
Not only that, but this new release goes even further by color-managing both RGB and CMYK colors, so you can specify color profiles (just like in Photoshop and other pro graphics apps) to make sure your colors look exactly as you intended.
Color Management/Color Profile Support
ColorSchemer Studio 2 now color-manages all displayed colors. You can now work with specific color profiles to ensure your color-critical work comes out right the first time, whether it’s for the web or print.

LiveSchemes – Custom color relationships that you define
The new LiveSchemes tools help you to visually create color harmony relationships as easily as dragging colors around the color wheel.
Create custom LiveScheme formulas based on color theory, or your own creativity. You can also reverse-engineer and color-shift existing color schemes with a simple drag & drop.
Browse your saved LiveSchemes to apply custom color theory relationships to any color to build a ready-to-use color scheme.
QuickPreview Layout Templates
ColorSchemer Studio 2 now comes with 13 different QuickPreview layout templates that you can use to experiment with color scheme ideas in a variety of different settings, including website, blog, print and pattern layouts.
Use the new Variations palette to find colors that are similar or related to any starting base color.
Organize your colors into groups or folders within your Favorite Colors when building your color schemes.
ColorSchemer Studio 2 also adds a bunch of other enhancements to give you more control over your colors:
- New ways to pick colors: Use the new spectrum picker, or select from among the included color libraries.
- New import/export formats: Including Adobe Swatch Exchange (ASE), PNG, and XML formats.
- Enhanced Contrast Analyzer Check text and background color combinations for sufficient contrast and readability, based on W3C, WCAG, or HP accessibility recommendations.
- Drag-color-to-text Drag a color from ColorSchemer Studio and drop it right into your HTML and it will automatically be converted into a hex value in your code.
- Improved UI: Most tool windows have been combined into an easier-to-manage single-window interface.
