We are thrilled to release our newest step into the digital color space with PANTONE Studio!

PANTONE Studio represents the collective voice of thousands of designers worldwide, gathered and translated by our Pantone Lab team to help solve your greatest color challenges:
· Convert inspiration around you to Pantone
· Build and test palettes on designs & materials
· Share Pantone with your clients, collaborators, and social networks.

Studio is Creative Cloud connected, facilitating easy delivery of PANTONE Color to your design software.

Download for free to use all tools, features, and content, with a selection of available PANTONE Colors. Subscribers get access to all Pantone colors (more than 10,000 standardized hues across all libraries and disciplines), and receive a 1-week or 1-month free trial with a monthly or annual subscription.

Color Values/References
Color data (sRGB, Hex and CMYK values) and harmonies (complementary, monochromatic, analogous, split complementary, triadic) are displayed for each color, as is the visual cross-reference of that color across Pantone libraries, including PANTONE PLUS Series (Graphics/Ink), FASHION, HOME + INTERIORS (Cotton Textiles and Pigment) and PANTONE PLASTICS.

Color Palettes
Users can build color palettes consisting of up to five colors by selecting from color guides, extracting colors from photos and images, searching by color number, and by interacting with the custom palettes delivered in Articles. Additionally, you can:
Name palettes and add geotag locations
Add tags that make palettes searchable
Add inspirational images to use palettes as a personal mood board
Store and manage an unlimited collection of palettes; and
Send palettes direct to Adobe Creative Cloud from within the app

Color Experimentation

Capturing Inspiration from Your Surroundings
Inspirational images – from Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, or your camera roll – become your next color palette source. Creating a palette at the point of inspiration is also simplified by the app’s camera and adjustable color picker, which allows you to pinpoint a specific set of PANTONE Colors from any image uploaded into the app.

Crowdsourcing Inspiration
Studio is linked with PANTONE Canvas (powered by Bēhance) and the ColourLovers community to pull in the inspiring work of others. Users can scroll through artists’ designs organized by PANTONE Color and select their palettes for use.

Trends from the Pantone Color Institute™ (PCI)
Receive insights from PCI through a convenient feed of content rich in color insight and imagery. Regular content includes articles focused on the emotions, meanings, psychology and context behind particular colors. This also includes regular curated trend palettes to use in your next design project.

Sharing to Social Media

******Top 10 games in some countries******
******Support tilt and touch control modes******

Big Truck is a simple, but very fun to play game. You just have to drive a truck across rough terrain and make sure that your goods get to the destination safely. You will get a precise number of goods you carry and a precise number of goods that is required. The more you bring, the more score and coins you get.

This game is all about being careful. At the beginning of each round, a precise number of goods will be dropped into your container. You have to touch the right of the screen for accelerating, the left of the screen for slowing down and tilt the device for balancing the truck. On the top side of the screen, you will find a timer and the goods count in your container and level required. You have to find the perfect balance between reaching the end of the level rapidly and doing so without dropping too many goods. The only way you can lose is if you don’t transport enough goods or if you manage to turn the truck upside down. In this case, you will have to retry.

Game instruction:
– Drive by pressing on the right or left of the screen.
– Tilt the device to control the truck carefully not to drop too much.
– Also support joystick control mode.
