Color Picker overview

Color Picker is a new utility application designed for all Cocoa developers and application designers. An efficient color picker for professionals who care about optimising their workflow and speeding up the process.

With Color Picker, you can choose any color from anywhere on your screen using the magnifying-glass tool and selecting the desired pixel. Then it displays the value of the color in hexadecimal, RGB, NSColor, and UIColor. You can copy the code with a single click and paste it into your source code. Additionally, the app can read any HEX or RGB values that you might type and show you the corresponding color and code.

Color Picker has now become even better.

  • With the new Menubar option you can quickly access your recently copied or recently saved colors.
  • The magnifier tool is instantly displaying a preview of the color. (HEX or RGB)
  • Drag-and-drop your code from the application to any program you are working on. (e.g., Xcode)
  • Last but not least, Color Picker gets you out of trouble remembering the colors you used, as it contains a library where you can store the colors for any use in the future, simply by dragging the preview box to the library.
  • Especially for developers is zero-suppression, the removal of redundant zeroes from float numbers, as well as appending a semicolon in the source code.

What’s new in version 1.6.5

Version 1.6.5:
  • Support for Catalina NOTE: We had to remove the custom magnifier and fallback to Apple's default color picker as they wouldn't let us update the application with a custom magnifier that reads the pixel from the screen.

Color Picker is now FREE via the Mac App Store! It's a great way to access all your installed color pickers anywhere and access color codes.

Color Picker has been a lifesaver! My regular tool, ColorSchemer Studio, crashes when I try to use the screen picker in Yosemite. Color Picker doesn't have all the features of my regular tool but I love its simplicity and use it daily. Thanks you developer!
