: Is there any tool to display swatch sheet in a document? I'm looking for a tool or strategy (web app, software, Photoshop feature etc.) that will let me display all swatches I have in a '.aco'
I'm looking for a tool or strategy (web app, software, Photoshop feature etc.) that will let me display all swatches I have in a '.aco' or '.ase' file in a table and saved as a PDF (preferably) for documentation. When I picture it in my head I'm seeing something like a periodic table, showing the color in a square and adjacent to it showing the RGB for that color. It's basically to share the brand color palette to our dev teams who doesn't have the Adobe suite to look up colors themselves.
Does anyone know of any tool that does what I describe?
5 years later, although I believe the solution has been around for quite a while:
Download and run the following free Java(Extend)Script from within Illustrator:
More detailed explanation: open the .ase in Illustrator. Move the swatches from your .ase palette to the swatches panel. (You might want to remove the default swatches first). Run the script from file→scripts→other scripts. It will generate a swatch legend that looks like this:
For that i use "ColorSchemer", i think is the best tool for that, and also, is compatible PC and MAC + iOS App!
