ColorSnapper — the missing color picker for OS X.

ColorSnapper is an easy-to-use tool for quickly finding out the color of any pixel on the screen. It is activated via a configurable system-wide hotkey, giving you a magnifying loupe to easily pick the pixel you need. The resulting color is copied to clipboard in a format of your preference.

Customer Reviews

An important part of my workflow.

I use this tool several times a day and it saves me an incredible amount of time. It’s so quick to use, it’s very easy to forget you’re even using it!
I especially recommend this to digital artists and graphic designers. Just get it!

Favorite Color Tool on Mac!

I love ColorSnapper — it does exactly what it should to, and nothing more. One of my favorite details is that upon activiation, it doesn’t steal window focus, which is incredibly convienent.
