Ever missed the picker tool in real life? Here it comes!

ColorPicker uses the camera or a photo of your iOS device to tell you the color you are pointing at.

The free version of this app tells the RGB code only. You can upgrade to full version by InApp-purchase and access further color palettes including RAL and W3C color names, store your colours or send them by email.

(The color detection generally depends on the used camera and surrounding light conditions)

Identifies the color whether live from the camera or a photo

I do oil paintings and the challenge is always to isolate a color whether from a live scene or from an image I’m using as reference. This app is exactly what I need, showing the color where the app’s crosshairs are placed. Move the camera so the crosshairs are over the point of color, or if working off from an image in the photo album, move the image behind the crosshairs. The color indicated shows up as a band at the top of the screen, wide enough to make the color very clear and obvious. Excellent! I’m using iPhone 11 ProMax.

Simple and Efficient Color Picker

As a painter I want to see different subtleties in color and value. If I am struggling to know how to mix a color I can tap to see approximate ratios. I have used another app for awhile but already like the ease of this one better. I also like how I can enlarge and zoom into my photo and rotate it horizontally. Something my other app would not allow me to do. Thank you for making such a great app!
