Con is an app that can help designers determine the exact colors they see and hex codes from live scenes and photographs

Designers rejoice! Cone is an iOS app created by designer Kushagra Agarwal that allows users to identify Pantone colors from real life scenes. How? The app identifies these colors in real time, and then provides the hex color values for web and graphic designers, turning stunning natural landscapes or scenes into usable color palettes for design.


Users can freeze the frame to select colors at will. Agarwal, the designer, is actually color-blind, making the app an even more impressive achievement. “I just had to trust the camera data and translate that to color names,” Agarwal told PetaPixel. He later confirmed the colors with the help of friends with normal vision. The app is available now for just $1.99.
