Pixel Winch is a screen measurement app with a unique approach – rather than overlaying complicated controls on top of your existing workflow, it uses an interface similar to a traditional image editor.
Select a region on the screen to load it inside of Pixel Winch. The captured region will automatically magnify on your display. Take measurements using any combination of the included tools.
Need to look up previous measurements? No problem — use the history list to revisit past images. Worried about images clogging up your hard drive? Pixel Winch can be configured to automatically delete them.
• Fixes compatibility issues with macOS Catalina.
• Fixes an issue where importing a 16-bits-per-component image could cause a blank thumbnail.

A designer's best friend
I use this pretty much daily. It's trivial to take a shot with shift-ctrl-cmd-5 and start measuring. All the tools you'd want are there. Rulers, marquee selection, the ability to add rectangular frames for square sizes.
The crowning feature, though, is the color-aware grapple tool. Just click in a color and start dragging to adjust tolerance until you've got the whole width or height you need. It's brilliant.
Being able to look back through a few recent screenshots, and switch between scale modes (1x, 2x, 3x) are also all very welcome capabilities.
Unsung hero for design and app dev
Great little tool! Stays out of the way until you need it, peforms beautifully, and takes up mere *kilobytes* on my drive! Truly an exceptional in an era where even menubar apps demand more resources than entire office suites used to.
It’s the best
