Chromatic Bytes releases Shades 1.1

May 16, 2007 in Software (E)


Chromatic Bytes released version 1.1 of Shades, its addition to the Apple OS X color picker. Shades helps users select a color by showing a grid of closely related colors.

Version 1.1 adds support for hex strings for html colors.

- Holding the mouse over a color chip gives a tooltip that shows the hex string for the color as well as its RGB and HSB values.

- Option clicking on a color chip loads the hex string for that color into the clipboard so that it can be pasted into an HTML editor.

Version 1.1 also fixes a problem that would cause Adobe Lightroom to hang when Shades is used with Lightroom.

Shades 1.1 is a free update for current users.

Located in New York City, Chromatic Bytes, LCC makes Macintosh software for OS X, specializing in graphic arts software.
