If you use a color picker on your Mac, read no further. This is the story about yet another Mac color picker; one among many low cost tools to extract and paste digital colors. If you have more than one color picker on your Mac, then read on, and I’ll share a few of my favorites.
The latest to grace my Mac is the free Sip color picker. As is the case with every other color picker in the world, Sip grabs a color from any pixel on your Mac’s screen and makes the code ready to drop into your app.
Sip’s claim to fame is a few features not always found in Mac color pickers. First, open it up to pick a color by using keyboard shortcuts. That saves time, effort, and mousing.
Choose in advance the color format you need to use. The list is more extensive than most inexpensive color pickers and includes CSS Hex, CSS3 HSL, CSS3 RGB, Calibrated NSColor for HSB, Calibrated NSColor for RGB, Device NSColor for CMYK, Device NSColor for HSB, Device NSColor for RGB, UIColor HSB, UIColorRGB, CGColor Generic RGB, and CGColor Generic CMYK.
You can choose the number of colors that Sip keeps in the history list. CSS colors can be toggled to all uppercase or lowercase.
And, uh, that’s about it. Sip is worthy of the price (free).
And, if you need color schemes from the colors you pick, there’s not much better than ColorSchemer Studio. And those are only a few from my collection.
