Learn how to easily create color palettes in Procreate. This step-by-step tutorial will teach you how to find and add color swatches.
My new favorite activity may just be scrolling through color palettes. I could sit for hours and scroll, scroll, scroll. So many color combinations to choose from. When I first started lettering in Procreate, I had a really hard time picking colors. I would choose colors one by one from the default color palettes or from the color wheel. It was a very slow process. But then I learned how to create color palettes in procreate and a whole new world opened up. Today I’m going to show you exactly how I do it.
WHERE TO FIND FREE PROCREATE COLOR PALETTES
There are numerous websites where you can find free procreate color palettes. One site that I have found very easy to use is Design Seeds. This site has lots and lots…and lots of color palettes to choose from. Simply scroll to find a palette that you like, tap and hold the photo and save it to your photos folder.
Another place to find free procreate color palettes is Pinterest. Just search “color schemes” and you will be presented with more options than you know what to do with.
HOW TO CREATE COLOR PALETTES IN PROCREATE
Now that you have the photo with the colors that you want, it’s time to load them into Procreate. To do this, you can either open the photo directly or create a new document and add the photo to the document.
To open the photo directly, simply tap “Photo” in the upper right corner and choose your photo. To open the photo within a new document, tap the “+” in the upper right and choose the document size. Then, tap the wrench icon, and the “+” to add the photo.
Tap on the color icon in the upper right and add a new palette.
Next, tap on the procreate eyedropper tool and move it over a color you want to add to the palette. Or, for a shortcut, just tap and hold the color that you would like until the eyedropper tool appears.
Go back into the color palette screen and tap in the new palette that you just created. A color swatch will appear. Repeat this process with each color that you want to add to the procreate color palette.
