Color Picker, the utility application, designed for all Cocoa developers and application designers. An efficient color picker, for professionals, who care about optimizing their workflow and speed up their process.

With Color Picker, you can choose any color from everywhere on your screen using the magnifier and selecting your desired pixel. Then a preview of the color, its Hexadecimal, RGB value, NSColor and UIColor is displayed.
You can copy the code with a single click, drag 'n drop or use the new shortcuts to paste it into your source 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)

Additionally, the app can read any HEX or RGB values that you might type and show you the corresponding color and code.

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 now given the chance of Zero suppression, where they can remove redundant zeroes from the float numbers, as well as appending a semicolon in the source code.

Key Features:
- Touch bar integration
- Added menubar icon
- Added recently saved and copied colors
- Code is draggable to other apps (e.g. Xcode)
- HEX or RGB value showing in the magnifier
- Retina support
- Pick up any color using the new built-in magnifying glass tool
- Save as many colors in the library for future use.
- Copy the format you need for your source code (e.g. NSColor, UIColor, HEX, RGB)

Color Picker requires macOS 10.10 or later

Incredibly simple and easy to use

This is coming from a new developer, so ive never used any apps or programs of this type before.

One thing I never knew I would need is a good color dropper for finding and using colors I liked from other apps, or even photos I come across.

To use this app, you simply open the application, and click on the magnifying glass icon. This then creates a small circular space with a crosshair-like point in the middle that will read out the colros as you hover over them. From here you can click and save the color, which will then give you borh RGB and HEX values for whichever use you please!

To the devs, thank you for making this! As a new developer, I’ve learned that finding software that works and is simple can be difficult when you have no experience.

I use this app daily

As a web designer/developer, having a simple way to select and store colors is critical. I’ve used this app for quite some time now. I really love the ability to organize sets of colors into different swatches, allowing me to organize colors by client or project. Highly recommend this app for anyone who is a designer.

Simple, yet powerful...

We do periodic custom development for our customers, as well as public presentations. Having this application provides a simple, yet powerful level of functionality that we need. Overall, a very good application for any website and/or graphics developer.
