With Color Picker Pro you can easily pick pixel colors anywhere on your screen. This includes even dynamic content like DirectX. In addition, you are not restricted to picking just a single pixel, you can pick the average color of several pixels within a certain square area!
Color Picker Pro has support for over 25 different color formats and spaces, and you can convert freely between them by simply selecting the desired format from the drop-down list. The supported formats include: Numerical (OLE & Win32), RGB, RGB%, HSL (0-240), HSB (360 100 100), CMY, CMYK, CIE Lab, CIE Luv, LCH, CIE XYZ, Yxy, YIQ, YUV, YCbCr, YCC, YPbPr, YES, Hexadecimal, HTML, HTML color names, Extended HTML color names, Visual Basic, C++, Delphi, Photoshop.
The program can display the value of any color in any of the supported color spaces. Simply select the desired color space from the drop-down box, and immediately see the color value in the desired color space! Some of the supported color spaces include: RGB, HSL, HSB, CMY, CMYK, CIE Lab, YIQ...
The program can automatically generate and display any of the 15 available variations of the picked color, such as its contrast or complementary colors, its inversion, grayscale or web safe equivalents, brightness and saturation variations, and others!
There is a built-in dual preview that lets you see precisely what pixels you are picking. The preview displays a small portion of the screen where the mouse is located in its actual and enlarged views. This way you can not only easily pick the color of the right pixels, but also see fine details of the screen, which you otherwise would not be able to discern.
Most color pickers work by automatically capturing the color of the pixel right below your mouse pointer as you move your mouse. This is known as mouse-free picking mode. While this may be useful at times, frequently you may need to perform certain operations with the captured color, once it has been picked: such as copying it to clipboard or changing its format for example.
However this is not possible if the program picks colors continuously as you move the mouse. That’s where mouse-drag picking mode comes in. In this mode, you click on the special button inside the program and then drag the mouse pointer to a pixel you want to capture, and once your mouse pointer is over the desired place, release the mouse button to pick the color.
