This web-based app makes use of AI to select the well-received IG pictures on the profile and then compiles the pictures to just a few shades after choosing the most striking and vivid colors.

For instance, if a picture of pale tinted orange colored sunset has the most number of “hearts”, then a big orange circle will represent the distinct orange shade. According to the app creator, his spouse, Emily Quinton, is the inspiration behind this application. She is the founder of Makelight which is an encouraging community for creative folks to learn in a positive manner. Makelight assists and persuades people to create their creative lives via motivational posts and other similar stuff.
