Announcing Nearest Color


I’m making a new tool called Nearest Color to help you find the nearest colour from your palette. It’s still a work in progress but I’m sharing progress. It’ll be an app for macOS and Windows.

You enter #d58400 and select your palette. Say you select Tailwind, it tells you yellow-600. You enter lab(80.5% -40 79), it tells you lime-400.

I made a page showing how the underlying colour algorithm for Nearest Color finds matches that correspond with human perception unlike other tools that just use the mathematically closest colour.
