How To Set Custom Colors

MyPhotoApp allows you to choose the colors you want to use in your App.  You can do this in several ways.

  • When you set up your brand color scheme through Quick Setup. 
  • As a customised color scheme for an individual App through Layout Settings.  
  • As a new color scheme to be applied to the Default Template and all future Apps through Layout Settings
  • As a custom override to individual elements within the App such as button color via the edit section settings

You can specify a new color in two ways:

  1. By using the color picker to select a new color randomly or
  2. By entering the unique color number - formally known as the Hexadecimal color value

Hexadecimal colour values are often used by Web designers as they allow you to specify a color scheme and apply it accurately across different design elements. They are made up of the hash symbol # followed by a six digit code made up of numbers and letters. Every color has a unique numeric code.

Here are some examples;

#ffffff          = white

#050505     = black

#cb8fo1      = gold

If you want to know the color number for a specific color, such as a color used in your logo or other marketing material, you can find this out by opening the image in an image editor such as Photoshop and doing the following:-

  1. Click on the foreground color to open the color picker.
  2. Move your mouse onto the image and click the color you want to know the numeric value of. 
  3. The color will now be displayed in the top rectangle in the top right-hand corner of the color picker, above the original colour.
  4. The numeric code for the colour will be displayed in the bottom right-hand corner.
  5. Make a note of the numeric value of the color for future use. 
  6. Click on any further colors you wish to know the numeric value of.
