Can you imagine if color disappears from the earth?

How horrible that would be. Life will be boring.

Everyone like color dan everyone has their own favorite color.

Sometimes you express your feeling through color. When you are sad you intentionally wear a dark color than a bright one right?

Color can be an identity. For example, when you are joining a community, color in the member outfit or symbol is used to differentiate yourself as a member of a certain community.

Even every nation has flags as their identity. The flags are so colorful. In each color contain a philosophy of the country.

Color can be a signal too. A traffic light, something that we see almost every day (red, yellow, and green, repeat).

Even you are as a human have a color that stick to your body. The color that can be seen, such as blood and skin, and the colors which remain abstract such as your aura.

Look how blessed you and I to have color in our life. Thank God .

Life is beautiful when you are grateful”.

When I went out for a walk, I often saw a color that captivated me like when I went to the coffee shop I often found cute cup, or stunning decoration wall in the caffe, and park etc.

I was wondering that if only I know the color name. I’m definitely will buy a yarn with the same exact color for my next project. It must be nice.

So because I didn’t know  the name of the color, I let it go, and moving on.

Okay,  let’s go back to the main topic on how to get yarn color palette automatically from images for your crochet project.

This website has a cool featured called “color palette generator” which can help you to find colors palette automatically from an image.

So related to the topic, you can use this feature to find yarn color quickly and easy for your next crochet project. How cool is that? kekeke^^.

But, in some case when one of the color didn’t appear, that is because the image is not so clear, so make sure you upload image with good quality, that’s  why HD picture is a better choice.
