A Beautiful and Intuitive Color Picker and Color Palette Generator - A necessary addition to any web/app developer's toolbox!
It’s super easy to generate unlimited Color Palettes with quick access to all color information, and on the fly code generation for app development. The editable Palette database allows you to archive and restore any color palette for later use with super quick search. All your carefully crafted palettes are synchronized to the macOS System color picker. So, all your color schemes are available for use in Pages, Affinity Photo, Final Cut Pro or any other first class macOS app!
Its super easy to import and export Palettes to JSON, Adobe .ase, and Apple .clr file formats. And, naturally any imported palettes will be added to the macOS System color picker for reuse in all other apps.
There's no need to remember every little change you make, as all color state changes are saved to History for easy recovery.
17,000+ color names are baked right into ColorWell, making it a little easier to remember any colors you happen to generate.
Access to the MacOS Color Wheel can be tedious by default, but ColorWell can be configured to show it via global hotkey or a quick mouse click from your system menu bar. This allows you to quickly grab hex/rgb/hsl/hsb/Lab/cmyk and code snippets from any color source.
If you’ve ever needed to quickly generate a color palette from a source (or multiple source) image(s), then the Palette Generator is exactly what you need. You can grab any source image(s) and drop them into the Generator window to generate a color palette of the most common colors present in the image(s). Of course you can save any palettes you generate in the ColorWell Palette database!
Here’s some uses for ColorWell (I’m sure there are many more!):
-Store and instantly retrieve unlimited color palettes
-Create color palettes by dragging and dropping images
-Quickly grab hex / rgb / hsl / hsb / Lab / cmyk / swift/objc code snippets from any source.
-Easily convert between hex / rgb / hsl / hsb / Lab and cmyk.
-Quickly eyeball any color name / hex / rgb / hsl / hsb / Lab / cmyk color.
-Quick conversion of color name / hex / rgb / hsl / hsb / Lab / cmyk or the colorpicker into NSColor / UIColor Objective-C or Swift ready code.

Ratings and Reviews
A Very Convenient Tool. Frequently Updated.
Have had this app for years. Years ago it was mildly useful. Now it is extremely useful. The full integration with system palettes makes it sing. Frequent updates, consistent improvement, and quality of UI all indicative of an active, professional developer.
Puts Hex, RGB, CMYK, HSL, HSB, Lab, Swift, & Objective C all at hand in one place. A great time and click saver. For pros, easily pays for itself in time value saved. For casual designers it makes color management more accessible.
Color names are also a nice referential convenience; especially when returning to a project after an interval, when values may no longer be top of mind.
Developer Response ,
I use it daily and highly recommend it for grabbing colors from mockups, photos, etc.
This is exactly what I needed. It gives me access to the color picker from the desktop. it's fast, stable, and inexpensive. It also allows you to add your own custom key command to open it up. The only wish I would have is to have the key custom command toggle visibility (show/hide) of of app instead of just opening it.
