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.

What’s New

Version 1.2

• Fixes compatibility issues with macOS 10.14 Mojave.
• Changes default preferences to "Show icon in Dock and menu bar" and "Show screenshots as Standard window".
• Adds basic Touch Bar support.

Best in class. I use it daily.

I tried out a bunch of other software designed to assist with pixel-perfect UX/web work, and I found this to be the best. It’s fast and lightweight - available when you need it, and gets out of the way when you don’t. I emailed the developer about a suggested improvement, and he sent me an updated version with that request within 48 hours. Pretty amazing!

Easy and great!

I love PixelWinch. I’ve been using it since it was in beta and was more than excited to pay for it once it launched.
It’s quick, easy, and lightweight. Love it.
