How it Works

  1. The Colour Picker app must be active, then press Ctrl-G to grab the colour.

  2. If the app is not active, then click on it to make it active.

  3. After pressing Ctrl-G, the colour will be selected and the scanning will stop and preview will show the area selected.

  4. Press the Copy button to copy the HTML HEX value (click the # checkbox to include the #)

  5. Press Ctrl-G again to start scanning.

  6. Your History will show in the History Boxes and you can click those to copy those values

    Would a feature to choose your own hot-key be useful or is there a better key to use? Let us know.

App Crashing

We have had some reports of the application crashing, with a "Hard Error" we are looking into this.

We might add a switch to switch off the preview (we think that is the issue) to help but any feedback would be helpful. [This has been fixed and should be available when version is ready in the store]

Incorrect Colours

If the colour picker colours don't match up to known HTML colours on different screens, this is probably due to monitor calibration or display settings.

Known issues / Fixes

Known issues that effect the accuracy of colours grabbed from the screen (this includes screenshots)

  • If you system has 3rd party display software/drivers, eg NVIDIA, with settings like 'High Contrast' this may effect the colours.

  • If your system display settings has "HDR" switched on, this can effect colours.

  • If your display uses its default colour space that comes as standard, this might effect the colours, try changing this to an sRGB Colour Space, or use the Windows screen calibration, this will help set your monitor up to display correctly and set the Colour Space.

There are also specific tools to calibrate monitors
for viewing accurate colours on screen eg:
