• Colors by Number offers multiple means of viewing, editing, saving and exporting your own selections from literally billions* of unique combinations of up to four colors displayed in 10 different geometric designs through an intuitive and customizable user interface.

• The Colors by Number interface is divided into a central display area flanked by control panels that provide multiple options for viewing, defining, adjusting and managing selected color sets. Form - follows - function.


VIEW / SAVE (center panel)

• Cycle through billions of combinations of four colors generated in either Manual or Auto mode - set against your choice of three different background colors (gray, black or white)

• Toggle back and forth between 10 interchangeable geometric designs to view colors surrounding, adjoining and/or layered on top of one another

• Each design is comprised of four distinct color areas arranged and identified in numbered, overlapping layers

• Colors by Number is programmed such that no two colors can ever repeat within a given four-color combination

• Back and Forward buttons allow you to review your entire session history, one step at a time

• Eyedropper function for sampling and capturing colors generated in the central display panel; any colors in the resulting palette(s) can be selected and dropped onto individual color sliders in the right-hand control panel

• Option to hide left and/or right control panels (try hiding both control panels, select Auto mode, and see what happens next!)

• Save as many of your color selections as you like – for editing, printing, sharing or exporting for use in other applications


SELECT / ADJUST (right-hand panel)

• All color values are defined in RGB, HSB and Hexadecimal color models including alpha channel (transparency) values

• Adjust individual color values - either by direct text input or by adjusting slider controls - changes are reflected in real time, in color blocks associated with controls and in the main (center) display area

• Any number of the four colors in a given form can be locked to prevent that color (or colors) from changing - by tapping once on its corresponding small color block; tapping again unlocks the color(s)

• Tapping twice on a small color block in the right-hand control panel brings up a Visual Color Selector where you can choose to edit or replace an existing color

• "Info" icon at bottom right provides access to Colors by Number's instructional video tutorial, support website, and email contact with the development team


EDIT / MANAGE / EXPORT (left-hand panel)

• View your entire session-specific history recorded from generated color and design selections, slider adjustments, text inputs or saved palette / design retrievals

• Store an unlimited number of selections in a Library that can be retrieved even after the app has been quit and restarted; color selections stored in the Library include dates created and last modified

• Print multiple selections with color data and associated thumbnail images to AirPrint-enabled printers

• Edit: review, add, delete or modify your Saved and Library selections at any time

• Export multiple, saved color selections as Adobe Swatch Exchange (ASE) or Image files; all selections exported via email include thumbnail images with numbered color areas and color data including alpha channel (transparency) values
