Pipette: Fetch Colors from all over the Screen

Tutorial by Stefan Trost | 2016-04-08 at 15:50

Using the tool Pipette for Windows and Linux, it is possible to fetch and determine each color from your screen, for example for using it in some graphics application. In this tutorial, we show how to do that.

First of all, start the tool Pipette that you can download for Windows and Mac OS X from the linked website. In the following screenshot you can see how this program is looking like.

Pipette Screenshot

  1. Click once on the button "Pipette" with your mouse.
  2. Move your mouse over the screen. You will always see the color currently located under the mouse cursor and defeated over the button.
  3. Click once with your mouse again to take the color. The color will then be displayed in the color systems HEX, CMYK, CMY, HSV, TColor, XYZ and xyz and it will be added to the color list on the right.

Old colors from the color list can be clicked and thereby shown again.

Instead of fetching colors with click - move - click, you can also go to the menu Settings > General > Pipette Mode in order to change the behavior to hold the mouse and getting the color with releasing the mouse.
