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.
- 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

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.

Recent update ruined the app for me

Until the latest release this app was perfect. I'm still giving 5 stars cuz it sounds like Apple screwed you. I used to be able to do one keyboard shortcut, click my pixel and have my color. Now, it is a multi-step process, due to this change "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." It was fun while it lasted. Going to look for another app.

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.

Not broken, just meh...

As stated in the dev notes, they have to use the Apple Color Monitor to work. So it's not broken really, just takes a bit of getting used to. When you open the app and select the magnifine glass, the Apple color picker will open up. Use the dropper to meter the color you want and it will feed that to the color picker app. You will see it update and you can copy/paste the data you need (see the Edit menu for the type you want. Hex as example if ⌘E). Not the most convenient but I am still able to get what I need. Seems like it was a limitation from Apple.
