Colorspace is a universal color picker for Web developers and designers. The application can be hidden in the task bar and lets you pick colors from anywhere on your screen. Colorspace is designed as a replacement for Print Screen + Photoshop. Sometimes you just need to know what color a box has or if it is a gradient and this tool will help you with that. There is also a history dialog that can be used to create color palettes.

I don't think this app is as bad as some of the earlier comments suggest. First off, it launches and runs just fine on my 3GHz quad-core Mac Pro with OS X 10.6.4. If it won't launch, chances are there is something wrong with your system - perhaps you haven't kept Java up-to-date.

The interface now includes the basic Mac UI elements: window management buttons, a window resize zone in the lower right-hand corner and the basic OS X graphite appearance [note that the screen shot on MacUpdate is not up to date]. Colorspace utilizes a unique version of the color wheel including the primary, secondary and tertiary colors with tints and shades and a dozen zones in between the twelve standard colors. Working with these 120 initial hues, you can adjust the saturation and brightness to achieve any number of variations. With the Capture Color tool you can pick up color from anywhere else on your screen. Color values are displayed in HTML Hexadecimal or RGB decimals and can be limited to web safe colors.

The program works just fine in demo mode where I've been testing it; whether the licensed version is worth $30 to $35 will depend on whether it meets your color selection needs. But the developer has made an effort to make the Mac version look and work like a Mac application. It no longer has that androgynous Java appearance it started out with - which renders many of the early criticisms moot.

In the description it says "the application can be hidden in the task bar" (As of 12.20.09). They want to actually SELL this to Mac users? C'mon man, write a real Mac app that respects Mac users and OSX. This ugly Java crossover Windoze port just won't cut it in the Mac world. The standards here are higher!

Couldn't get it to launch. Icon bounces in the dock twice and vanishes? No crash report or anything to say why it wont work. I've got plenty of other Java applications and these work fine.

Written in Java, looks like Windows. No thanks.

First of all, it's a bit misleading: this is NOT a "color picker" in the sense that it can be accessed from within applications.

It's an application itself. A slow-to-launch Java application and like most of those has a very un-mac-like UI.

IMO it doesn't really give you anything useful. You can get much more bang for your buck with a true color picker like Painter's Picker, or a standalone app like Art Directors Toolit
