Hi, we’re Awkward. A while ago, we came across this Tweet with an idea for a Sketch plugin that extracts color palettes from images. We felt like it was perfect to experiment with and the idea resulted in Alembic.


  1. Launch Plugins › ⚗️ Alembic
  2. Select the layer you want to extract the colors from
  3. Click a color to copy it to your clipboard
