ColorSchemer ColorPixJan 28
Graphic designers tend to look at things differently. They see the arrangement and color scheme of things that mere mortals would just take for granted. Anything can be art, and it takes a discerning eye to really see it sometimes. While taking part in normal computer functions, some designers may see colors that they’d like to use in their own projects. Identifying the type of color can be very difficult, but with ColorSchemer ColorPix, you can get the exact color value of any pixel.
ColorPix is a useful little color picker that grabs the pixel under your mouse and transforms it into a number of different color formats. You can use the built-in magnifier to zoom in on your screen, click on a color value to copy it directly to the clipboard, and even keep ColorPix on top of all other apps and out of the way. Best of all, there’s nothing to install – just download the tiny app and off you go. So grab it now, it’s FREE!
This is the actual size of the ColorPix window. When you move your mouse over your screen the color values on the left and the color swatch on the right will change color depending on the pixel under your mouse.
ColorPix Window with Magnifier
