Designers are familiar with the typical circular color picker menus. You can see this in various software packages including GIMP and Adobe Photoshop. But what about creating color pickers for websites & mobile apps?

I’ve collected a huge set of color picker interfaces designed for mobile apps & webapps. This gallery also includes some icons and design inspiration related to color swatches. UI design is tough and especially when it comes to dynamic effects. Color pickers are just one interface concept which can be difficult to grasp. It is my hope this inspirational showcase will offer ideas to designers looking to make usable and creative color selectors.
