Loupe is a color picker for your iPhone

You never know where you are going to find the perfect color. With Loupe you can capture your color inspirations so you don't have to try and guess what that shade was when you are back at your computer. Simple and thoughtfully designed, Loupe lets you create color swatches from your photo library or using the camera to save colors as you find them. Perfect for web designers, graphic artists, interior decorators, artists, scrapbookers, and anyone who loves color.

How to use Loupe:
• Choose a photo from your library or use the camera to take a picture.
• Use the loupe ring to select the color you want to use. You can drag the loupe around your photo to the area you want, and resize the area that will be sampled by pinching and expanding the outer ring. A smaller loupe will give you a more precise swatch, but a larger sample may give better representation of the color. Loupe's color averaging algorithms have been optimized to give you the best possible results with the iPhone camera.
• You can add a note to help remember details about your swatch.
• All of your swatches are available on the Loupe home screen. You can edit your notes and delete swatches.
