New Magnifying Glass

The original ColorSnapper magnifying glass – introduced in 2010 and adopted by every modern color picker app since then – just got even better!

It works with multiple displays, different resolutions and with different pixel density. You can switch between Spaces and Applications having the magnifying glass on the screen.

  • Introducing Hi-Precision Mode

    Allows to choose every physical pixel on a retina screen, but also works great on displays with normal pixel density by increasing mouse sensitivity and magnification level.

  • Control with gestures & keyboard

    Zoom in & out, change diameter, cycle through formats or move pixel by pixel using gestures and keyboard shortcuts.

Preferences: Code Style

Match your coding style

ColorSnapper 2 allows you to match the color export format to your coding style. Along with all new supported formats, including Generic, CSS, NSColor, UIColor, Swift, Android, Java, .NET, CGColor, and OpenGL this results in even faster developer workflow.

Accurate colors in Xcode

Accurate color values

The new color picker automatically converts colors picked from native OS X applications, including Safari and Xcode from your monitor’s color profile to sRGB. This means, you’ll get the same 1 RGB values as those used in your code.2

1 There may be small conversion differences when picking colors from monitors with a smaller color space than sRGB.

2 Non-native applications and applications that are not using the Cocoa framework are not affected by conversion issues.

And even more…

  • Photoshop & Illustrator Integration

    Control foreground and background colors directly from ColorSnapper in your favorite designer tools. No settings: it just works!

  • Capture Screenshots

    The new magnifying glass can be used as a review tool. Press P to copy the zoomed image into clipboard.

  • ColorSnapper API Soon

    Having command-line access to the magnifying glass allows developers to write plugins for popular code editors or integrate with graphic software.
