I'm looking for software that is able to extract the major colors of an image. It should basically be an alternative to the online Color wheel by Adobe where you can upload images and extract the five main colors of an image. The software must meet these requirements:

  • Gratis
  • Compatible with Windows 10 64bit
  • Runs totally offline
  • Actual software, not an online web app
  • Extract at least five colors (more would be nice; though)
  • Has a GUI interface

Preferences that are not requirements are:

  • In addition to a GUI interface, it also has a command-line interface
  • Able to input more than one image at a time

Thank you for this assignment - I wrote a little Java application for you ;) It fullfills all your requirements:

  • Gratis
  • Compatible with Windows 10 64bit (just install a compatible Java, I recommend a 64bit version)
  • Runs totally offline
  • Actual software, not an online web app
  • Extract at least five colors (it extracts ALL colors)
  • Has a GUI interface

Things it doesn't do:

  • CLI (maybe later)
  • multiple images input

You can get it from: https://github.com/Zottelchen/jca/releases/latest

You can see the source code (and submit improvements) here: https://github.com/Zottelchen/jca

  • Hmm, I don't think it's picking up the right colors for me, here's a screenshot of what happened when I tried using your gravatar – Tom Jun 3 '16 at 0:10
  • Now that is just... weird. I'll take a look at it, when I get home. – StackHogger Jun 3 '16 at 5:56
  • @Tom I just updated the tool. Seems like I am an idiot, because I created the wrong Hexcodes from the colors. (RBG instead of RGB). Please try again and tell me if it works now ;) – StackHogger Jun 3 '16 at 19:17
  • You're not, this application works great, +1 & accepted – Tom Jun 3 '16 at 19:31
