A digital artist's best friend

Ever come across a website, picture, or anything else on your computer, and really love the colour? Chances are, if you do, you take a screenshot, open up Adobe Photoshop, paste the screenshot in, get the eyedropper, and then click the colour. But why does it have to be so hard? Mac has tons of apps that do this, and there are a few for Windows, but why do they look ugly and are still a pain to use? Not anymore with ColourDock.

Just a keyboard shortcut away (Alt + C by default), ColourDock will instantly pop-up, and all you have to do is click on the part of the screen that you want the colour from, and it's saved to ColourDock for use in any program you want, not just a single app. Oh yeah, and the colour code is instantly copied to your clipboard so you don't have to do anymore unnecessary steps.

Lots of colours, just a click away

ColourGrab, at launch, supports up to 7 colours to be saved in your recent colours, and up to 7 pinned colours for frequent use. Even better, the entire colour palette from the Material Design guidelines by Google is built right into ColourDock! To get that colour, just click on either the HEX or RGB code, and it is copied to your clipboard. Oh, and it gets better.

If your recent history fills up, it just gets rid of the oldest colour. Want to delete a certain colour? Just right-click, and hit 'Reset Colour'. Feel like changing a certain colour? Just right-click on the colour and select grab colour, and change that specific colour. Have a colour code that you want to enter manually? Right-click it and enter either the HEX or RGB value, and save.

ColourDock is designed to work for you. It's fast, quick, and easy to use, making it perfect for any project that you need colours quick and reliably.

Customize it to your liking

Don't like where ColourDock sits in the corner of your screen? Move it. You can even set it to remember its last position, or go back to the corner. White too hard on your eyes? Just enable dark mode, designed to blend in with the Adobe CC suite. Feel like changing the system tray icon? You can do that too.
