A Windows color picker.

The Eye Dropper tool for Windows.

Select any pixel on your screen and retrieve its colour. ColorGet outputs a ton of different colour formats, and conveniently copies your favorite format into the clipboard.

Remove clutter by only displaying colour codes you need and use.

With lots of options you can make ColorGet adapt to your preferred workflow. E.g. copy the current color to the clipboard by pressing Ctrl+C or hitting the mouse button.

Clean. Simple. Effective.

A pipette tool for Windows 7 to 10 - reimagined.


Being used to the Mac OS X ColorPicker, I was on the lookout for a Windows equivalent. After some research I sensed a quite sincere lack of simple yet versatile Windows-based Eye Droppers, and so ColorGet was born.

Hence I have made ColorGet as practical as possible. With only few megabytes in size, both a portable version and an installer available, quite universal support for Windows 7 and upwards, and both 32bit and 64bit versions available, it should be able to support you anywhere needed.

Adapts to your workflow.

ColorGet features quite a few settings to make it your own. Apart from being able to select which color standards to use, you can change the default behaviour.

  • Optionally start ColorGet in active mode, so that you're ready to capture the color you're after right away.
  • Display a small zoom window next to your cursor.
  • Set your own hotkey for copying the color.
  • Define which color standard to copy to the clipboard.
    • ... including special options for web developers such as rgb(255,54,67);
  • Automatically minimise ColorGet to the Tray as soon as you have made your selection.

On top of that — if you're ever missing anything, I'll try my very best to incorporate your wishes into the next update.

Selling at $5.99

Because of the amount of time spent in developing ColorGet, I decided to sell it. (You wouldn't believe how many hours got into the planning, making, and math solving behind this.)

By charging you a small fee I can offer great, personal support, and ensure my costs are covered. These include the rather expensive Code Signing Certificate, for example, which is necessary to sign executables and installers on Windows.

Currently supported color standards

ColorGet can calculate and display the following color formats. The sample output represents how a color standard is copied to the clipboard.

HEX 0x59B200 or #59B200 (for web)
RGB 89 , 178 , 0 or either rgb(89 , 178 , 0) or rgba(89 , 178 , 0, 1) (both for web)
HSV / HSB 90 , 100 , 70
HSL 90 , 100 , 35
CMYK * 50 , 0 , 100 , 30

ColorGet doesn't need much:
Windows 7 or newer (32bit and 64bit natively supported)
and 5 MB of hard drive space.
