Drag and drop

Yea, it's that easy! We have utilized a function that just comes with vanilla Blender, you can drag colors where you want them, overwrite other channels or if you need to save a color.

Upload palettes

You can now download palettes from your favorite sites and upload them directly into Colorbox. Right now we support Colorhunt, Adobe, and Colorbox exports. If you have a favorite palette resource please let us know so we can support it.

Pick colors like a pro

By turning on Picker mode ( Shift + Ctrl + p ) in the image editor you can now grab up to 32 colors at once. Just collect the colors you need and hit Enter to send them to your palettes tab or Esc to leave Picker mode.

Turn any palette into a color ramp

Want a color ramp? Go to the the palette settings and transform it into a color ramp and then just click it right onto your node editor.

Start swapping colors

The Swapper is an amazing tool you can use to drive color fields ( similar to how you use vertex groups ). First add an empty collection , find a color field, right click on it and then select " Add to Swapper ". Now your RGB field is a child of this collection and is driven by the color of the collection.
