Access the Apple Color Picker in any application.

Overview

ColorPicker is a free utility application that makes the Apple Color Picker available anywhere - any time. More importantly, ColorPicker allows the colors panel to stay visible, floating above all open windows, regardless of what applications and windows you have open.

ColorPicker can be run as a normal application in the Dock or as a menu bar application, switchable via the preferences window -- the choice is yours.

Features:
  • Show/hide Apple Color Picker at any time, system-wide.
  • Run as a Dock application or in the menu bar (switchable via preferences).
  • Select colors from anywhere on your screen.
  • Drag and drop colors with applications that support the color picker.
  • Drag and drop between other application color pickers.
  • Colors panel stays visible, floating above all open applications and windows.
  • Easily extend the color picker with great third-party plugins.

The Apple Color Picker has always been a great tool, but until now, never seemed to be available when you need it most. Now, capturing those colors you need is only a click away. Plus, you can easily extend the color picker with some great third-party plugins.

What's new in ColorPicker

Version 1.7:
  • Compatibility with OS X 10.10 Yosemite.

Very handy. Before this I would use TextEdit (or some other Cocoa app) to summon the Color Picker. But this is neat. Please add a customisable hotkey to launch it. Otherwise, perfect.

This app looks cool, but there are a couple of problems. Retina support would be nice. Cheers.

Great little utility. Kudos to the developer. Would prefer option to disable the auto-update check however.

The developer is very responsive to questions and finding solutions. I had an install problem on my MBP and he personally sent me a solution faster than I could ever remember any developer doing so quickly. The app is quick and does not suck memory out of the system. It works as it is described.

Hi, may I know how did you solve the problem of installing the app to your MBP? I am having the same problem here too. I am using the late 2008 Unibody model, running on OSX 10.7.5

Agree about the hot-key launch option. My menu bar is way too crowded already.
