ColorPic is a lightweight software application designed specifically for helping you grab colors from your desktop and store the information using color palettes.

The tool reveals a straightforward design that allows you to tweak the dedicated parameters in no time. A help manual cannot be found in the package but the program offers some online tips about how to make the most out of its capabilities on its official website.

ColorPic gives you the possibility to choose between several predefined color palettes or create a new one. Grabbing colors and storing them in an empty palette can be done by pressing a hotkey (‘Ctrl+G’). To remove entries from the palette you need to press the same hotkey again.

The application offers support for an accurate color grabbing mode and reveals a magnifier in the main window which allows you to explore each pixel of your screen. Plus, you can adjust the zooming level of the magnifier and overlay a grid on top of the magnifier area to help you pick a color.

Aside from personalizing palettes with multiple colors, the program is able to reveal the color in decimal and hexadecimal values, and provides information about the RGB parameters. The hue, saturation, and lightness values are also displayed in the primary window.

Tests have shown that ColorPic carries out a task very quickly and without errors. It eats up from a minimal up to a moderate amount of CPU and memory resources so the overall performance of the computer is not hampered.

All things considered, ColorPic comes packed with several handy features for helping you pick any color from your screen. If you are looking for advanced options, such as webpage and image color extraction and manipulation, and importing/exporting mode, you can check out the professional version of the application, ColorPro.
