Different Color Mixer
Finding just the right color is not as easy as it seems, because you need to use the exact concentration of several tones. Luckily, specialized applications like Different Color Mixer give you the possibility to get a glimpse of how much of is needed and of what in order to get the perfect combination.
Easy to use but poorly designed
The application is as straightforward as can get. When running it, two windows open up, one that serves as a color selector, while the other lets you specify which to combine and the parts, as well as displaying the final result.
Its usability stretches up to as far as viewing is concerned, because there is no way to get technical details on the combination. Not even and RGB slider is available to view the exact parameters, nor is there a code of any type. This is available for the colors you pick, as well as for the result.
Obtain the ideal and real color
Tones you choose to combine are easily selectable either from the palette window or by clicking on the corresponding box next to the index number, which brings up yet another, but more practical palette. Furthermore, the quantity can also be set as parts, but nothing informs you of the measurement units.
Once you are happy with selections, hitting the “Click to mix colors” button displays two results. Two boxes, one containing the ideal color and the other a real one, gives you a glimpse of what happens when combining previously made choices.
Unfortunately, the reverse process is not implemented, meaning you are not able to simply select a color and find out how much of others is needed. It would have been a useful function for artists and painters alike.
A few last words
To sum it up, Different Color Mixer tries to give a helping hand, but gets stuck somewhere along the way. It does its job well in mixing several tones to show a result. However, the given information is only good to look at, due to the lack of a fields to display a color code or simply an RGB slider.
