Color palettes incl. converter

Recommended Posts


ColorTools can convert .ase files to .clr so we can use them in AD. Source+Readme & Releases

Install a .clr file either use AD or copy them in Finder to ~/Library/Colors (Use ⌘⇧G in Finder)

To remove a system color palette navigate to /system/Library/Colors


Color palettes

If any of you have some palettes then please share and I'll add them to this first post.

  • Google material design (big+small), 4 different pantone, default web colors 2.0 Color palettes.zip


ACO files

I haven't found a way to convert these yet - GIMP can read them, but only export in strange formats...any suggestions?


Affinity Designer feature

I've requested ase converter as a feature to be built in to AD but until then we can convert ourselves.

I correctly loaded the libraries but it doesnt produce a real Pantone tint.

The color has been converted in CMYK space.

If you try to export in PDF format, the drawing doesn't keep any Pantone swatch.
