This color picker is for those who want to know the name of a color on the screen. Simple and easy as that.
It's a color picker for the visually impaired. 5-10% of the world population has a problem to distinguish colors. Even less than 1% of them know that FFFF00 is the RGB code for yellow. Which is why most color pickers are just too technical for them.
This color picker deliberately distinguishes only 14 basic colors because in real life color names like "Moccasin" or "Heliotrope" are just not that useful.
- multi screen support
- loupe follows mouse mode
- ctrl+alt+cmd + c copies RGB code into the clipboard

You are a LIFESAVER!!!
I was so distraught when the developer of EyePilot let it die because I am a colorblind graphic designer and my success depends pretty heavily on these apps. I have been checking ever so many weeks for probably two years for a replacement and I just found ColorBlind and the EVEN BETTER news is that it is the best of its breed. It's fast, simple, and sleek and you can even use keyboard shortcuts to have the loupe pop on and off, I couldn't be happier! I put the little guy in my login items and now I will never be caught putting green bows on things, for example, which happened just yesterday! YAY!!!!
Color Blind won't open consistently; since I've installed it, I've gotten the application to run only once, and when it did I needed to use the Activity Monitor to force it to shut down. The developer's website doesn't have support information readily available - there isn't even a basic FAQ page for troubleshooting.
I'm now retired from commercial television advertising. I faked my way through 45 years of work because I'm red/green color blind. I'm glad my fellow workers were willing to tell me my color selections were gross and then help me change them. This app would have been a blessing back then. Actually I'm using it now restoring old photo graphs. I don't have my wife running to my rescue seeing if the face color is OK. Green faced people still aren't that common!
I'm sure more artists will come out of the color blind closet if they knew of this program. After using it for a few days I have one recommendation for improvement. The sampling point is rather small. I wish it were adjustable, taking in a larger sampling point.
I hope the code writers keep this app going and improve on it.
