Can anyone please let me know if there is software (free or one-time payment) similar to https://sipapp.io/ where I can press a keyboard shortcut and it shows a color picker that copies the color of the selected pixel into the clipboard?
I don’t mind purchasing but I don’t need all the other bells and whistles that Sip comes with like saving of color palettes and can’t justify paying about AUD 16 initially and $8 every year.
I used to use a software called Frank de Loupe which has since been abandoned.
Tried a few from the app store but they need clicking on an icon to launch the color picker after pressing a keyboard shortcut and don’t immediately let me pick a color.
ColorSnapper 2 ($8.99) is pretty cool, but designer-oriented, overkill for most people, and hasn’t been updated in a year. I’ve got a soft spot for it and I was using the original version from around 5 years ago…
Long shot… I don’t suppose that colour is going to end up in photoshop once you’ve selected it is it?
Probably a “heavier weight” solution than you’re looking for… but just in case it does match up with your end goal…
If you do already have photoshop running you can use the eye-dropper tool to sample colours from anywhere on your desktop, not just from within photoshop itself. With the eye-dropper selected click down on the PS document but then drag to the colour on the desktop / other window that you want to sample.
