Adobe Illustrator Teases Cool Tool That Extracts Color Palettes From Any Image

In addition to Photoshop’s iconic ‘Content Aware Fill’ that was recently moved over to After Effects to let you remove objects from videos, Adobe Illustrator has now sneaked a tool that allows users to extract color palettes from any image or photograph.
The experiment was previewed at the OFFF design festival in Barcelona. Aside from generating color palettes straight from graphics of your choosing, you can also transfer them to your canvas on Illustrator and recolor all the fills at once, according to Adobe’s blog post.
Furthermore, you can make adjustments to these hues so that they better match your project.
Users simply have to import images into their libraries, where Illustrator will study them and generate color palettes.
As with many Adobe Sneaks, however, this experiment might not roll out anytime soon, and would probably require several upgrades before it is ready for the masses.
To better understand how the feature works, watch the video below showing extraction of a color palette from photographs tilework in Barcelona, Spain. The results really are magical.
