Picular

Google, but for colors.

4.8/5
About

Picular is a rocket fast primary color generator using Google's image search. If you ever needed the perfect yellow hex code from a banana, this is the tool for you!

Would you recommend this product?
Endlessly curious. //////\

Search any brand name and see very accurate colors.

Pros:

This app is incredible. It can source colors from keywords in a mind-blowing way.

Cons:

None at all.

Great product, can't wait to watch it grow.

The merge between real world and hex codes

Predictive search could be helpful for additional recommended words as you type.

I waited 5 mins to load some colors. Tried multiple times, sometimes worked sometimes nothing.

ModernizrProto.js:37 - Pending for a long time (few minutes)

Pros:

Nice design, good idea

Cons:

Slow, crashing

Yep, we had some server issues. Did not expect so many visitors! It should be up and running again! :)

Cool thing but still very stupid i.e when looking for white you get orange and when looking for dark or black you get white and mixed colors and those are the simplest colors to look for ...

Pros:

Interesting app

Cons:

still very stupid

I'm sorry to hear that Picular doesn't match your expectations. Picular isn't really created to search for a specific color – but rather searching for a topic that can bring you a relevant color palette based on top image search results from Google.
There is no substitute for hard work.

Very nice. Added to my bookmarks.

Pros:

Very easy to use and useful

Cons:

None so far
