Presets

Colorit lets you create custom presets that can be selected when creating colorit fields. For example, you might want to create a "Brand" preset and another for "Secondary" colors. If you make changes to the preset, it will update any fields where it is in use.

Preset Setting

When creating a new Colorit field you'll have the option to choose one of your presets or create custom field settings for that field. Settings include defining your color palette, appending transparent, black and white. Allowsing custom colours to be created, and opacity settings.
