Picular: Google, but for color

picularPick a color, literally any color.

Search engines come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Now there’s one for those of us who are lovers (or seekers) of color.

Simple and elegant and particularly speedy, Picular returns results in swatches. a palette of colors associated with your search terms. Select one of the swatches and you immediately copy the RGB color code to your clipboard.

Try typing in a color, an emotion, a scene, a mood, and see the beautiful array of choices.
