Whether you're designing web sites or desktop applications, it's frequently convenient to "borrow" a color from something that's displayed on your screen.

There are many "color picker" utilities that do this but, with the advent of Vista and even more so Windows 7, some of the old standbys just don't work.

Pixeur is a free, but best of breed, color picker.  You just drag it's little picker over the color you want and the color; and several types of color codes, display as you drag. When you release your mouse button, the exact color you were over is locked in the display, ready to be "lifted" for any purpose you please.

Pixeur displays color values as:

  • HSB: Hue, Saturation, Brightness,
  • RBG: Red, Green, Blue,
  • CMYK: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow & Key (black)
  • Web-friendly Hexadecimal: #61d6fy for example

A convenient "Copy" button will copy the hex value to your clipboard.

As you work, Pixeur can even maintain a list of colors you've picked.
