Description

Blend color and images dropped onto the blender. IBlendit is a creative interpretation of a combination of simulation and visualisation of color mixing, and may incidentally be a genuinely useful tool in the arsenal of the graphic design artist and a fulfilling source of amusement for all.

Themes Now with four funky styles and nine vibrant colors.

Status Menu Now can right-click on the body to see the blending status, and then show the file or open the color picker. You could use the blender as a file clipboard or to actually work out the average color of an image - how's that for useful!

“If completely useless (but oh-so-fun) is your thing … I couldn't resist trying out … it really does relieve stress”

“Let it mix them up until they become a mosaic and if all your problems aren't solved… well, at least you're going to love imagining that they are.”
