Pictaculous – Get your image’s colour palette (Updated)

Pictaculous – No sign up, It’s totally free. This website gives you a convenient way to check your image’s colour palette.

Once you upload your image (i.e. PNG, GIF, JPG), wait for a second, website will show your own palette from the image.

After that, you can download it as .aco (Adobe colour file / Adobe swatch file). This file is used to add colour palette in Photoshop to help your work.

After I upload the file (thanks doceri), system show the best 5 colour palette at the top. Under the best 5 palette, it has another 10 suggestion from other website.

Now you can download the best 5 colour palette as “Adobe Swatch File”. You can import the “.aco” by double-click it if you installed Photoshop already. You can see the new swatch right on your Photoshop.
