Only Color Picker to Pick from Area

This is the only color picker to pick from an area. They just fixed the bug in picking colors from areas, so I can now give them a good rating as the only such color sampler.

A very nice picker

I’ve used several different pickers, and I like this one a lot. The magnification under the crosshairs is a nice touch, and so is the ability to navigate with the keyboard. If it docked in the tray like Sip, it would be perfect.

Used for 2 seconds, and it rocks

I keep this in my dock so I can use it whenever. Super easy, launch app, move magnifying picker over color, click GO and follow flyout menu to copy color values to clipboard. I need it just for HEX and it works well. Picker isn't super accurate, but I'm not picking precise per-pixels colors. I just needed a handy tool to launch quickly from the dock and grab a color sample. It rocks.
