You can replace colors in the loaded image with colors created in the project and see the differences in real time.
You can also sort and organize colors using various sorting options
Accessibility is important. You can create color palettes which are friendly to color blind people
You can evolve colors using Genetic Algorithm or Cellular Automaton
