Better alternative to Painter's Picker: easier to use, supports more apps (including 64bit), new OS X versions. I only wonder why some of the functions are disabled by default and hidden in the settings pane...

I use it for PIxelmator, great features and really fast response, no lags and crashes on my side. Only thing I would add at this point is dark HUD theme to more fit Pixelmator.

At last a color wheel for mac that's under active development. Pretty nice features too.

Real hidden gem is ability to browse history of colors. It would be even better to SEE it, maybe as third mode in swatches, or to export like "e" shortcut does. Shortcut for exporting current color would be nice, dragging many colors from all the way can be tedious.

Trial is short at only 7 days, mine already ended. I think I'll buy, it already updated itself (bugfixes and support for more apps it said) so I hope it will remain active and get more improvements and features.

/// WARNING DON'T INSTALL SYSTEM WIDE ///
Installed the trial for System wide options. Now the trial is over I get Text Edit eating up all memory trying to access the coolorus website - very bad.
I have 32gb - text edit continually uses memory until nothing is left - 24gb for text edit!

How do you uninstall!? I can't see any option for this.

Otherwise good features but you can get most for free using Kuler plugin for Adobe.

Hi Tom,

We are terribly sorry for any inconvenience.

Such a bug was indeed present in some earlier builds of the software and affected mostly sandboxed apps that have no internet access (such as TextEdit or Preview).

It has already been fixed in the newest build, which is available for download here and from Coolorus website (and via auto-update mechanism inside Coolorus itself). The version with the hotfix still has the same number of 1.3.

To uninstall Coolorus you can remove it from
~/Library/ColorPickers
on your disk.

Library is a hidden folder so you might have to use "Go to folder..." in Finder (CMD+Shift+G). We will consider including a button for this or a separate uninstaller in the future versions.

P.S.
If you could confirm that installing the newest version fixes the problem for you we would be very grateful. If it does not please contact us at contact@coolorus.com so we can pinpoint and fix the issue.
There are currently no troubleshooting comments. If you are experiencing a problem with this app, please post a comment.
