Pochade easily allows you to select any color from your screen, save your collection of colors, and get the color value the way you want.

Pochade is ideal for anyone that often has to get different color values from their screen.

You can also import your existing collections. We support ACO, ASE, and CLR files

Pochade also makes it easy to save your favorite colors in collections. This makes it even easier if you work in several applications that you need to share colors with.

Note: Pochade is a Menu bar application. So the Dock icon will not display when launched.

The Best of The Best

Hey Guys, I love the App. Been using it for years. I did however notice a slight bug. If My computer sleeps and then I turn it back on and try to use the app, it no longer works and the Pallete duplicates on the screen. No biggie, just wanted to let you know. But the app rocks.

Just checked your website. Says this product is Discontinued… What a shame.

My favorite color picker app still exists!

Was glad to see Pochade was still around! Pochade (1) was randomly beachballing on Yosemite and I saw that there was no update for it. Just for kicks I search Pochade and see Pochade 2. This is the best, most polished and well thought out color picker I’ve used thus far. I like all the different color range views and copy/paste text transformations that I can configure. As a web designer and developer, this tool is immensely handy. Gladly paid for Pochade 2. Thanks!

Problems Under 10.12.6

This app does not work consistently with OS 10.12.6. The color picker gets "stuck” on the display and the app has to be quit
to remove it. Too bad - this was the very best of the color picker apps and had been my tool of choice for years.
