Color Selection Made Easy
Found yourself scratching head to pick a professional looking yet interesting color to give a final touch to your drawings?
We worked some magic and created a color stencil in Vecta, for everyone who needs good colors laid out in their drawings within seconds without googling or installing any extensions.
Material Design Palette stencil in Vecta
Use Vecta’s Material Design stencil to help you get your drawings done faster! It has a full range of harmonious colors based on Google’s Material Design that allows you to pick the colors you need, then apply them directly on any shapes in your drawing. Your font colors will automatically set to be in contrast with your shape's colors too!
How to use it effectively - The Stencil & Color Painter combo
Start by opening the Material Design Palettes stencil from your stencil menu. Choose the color symbol you want to use, then drag and drop it into your drawing.
Once dropped on your drawing, you’ll see a list of color tones for you to choose from. Pick the color you want to apply on your shapes, then use Vecta's color painter tool. After that, click on any shapes to apply that color.
Apply the same color on multiple shapes
To use the same color repeatedly on a few shapes, 'lock' the color with a double click on your color painter. Then go ahead to apply it on those shapes.
If you do not want the color anymore? One click on color painter and it goes off.
So treat it like a template, but with more flexibility and freedom for you to get things done faster. It will save you much more time, without compromising the aesthetics of your drawings.
