For those of us who have been in the Mac graphic design arena for a long time, well, let's just say we have our favorites; and lots of dear apps. Others do not need to apply.
Some apps are so useful, beneficial and necessary that they must be deleted from my cold, dead mouse pointer long after I have moved to the vast work area of the sky. But now and then it is someone who catches my heart.
Sip, Suck not
My experience with Mac graphic designers is such that I don't know a single person who only uses a color picker. It is true that there is a color choice embedded in MacOS Sierra. Many Mac color pickers are free or available for less than a dollar. Most Mac color picking applications do the same, too ̵
Simplicity. Elegance. Price. It's Sip, the Mac color picker, which also works on the iPhone and iPad.
Instead of capturing a pixel color value or sucking the color value from a pixel on the Mac screen, Sip just releases the color; Delicate, quiet, competent, right from the menu bar.
OK, I'm going over a bit on the hyperbolt, but Sip doesn't try to do too much and just does enough, so let me run through the basic list.
Sip has keyboard shortcuts for Mac power users, handles multi-touch gestures for MacBook users, colors can be dragged and dropped into Mac apps, and both Photoshop and Illustrator Extensions are available.
Specify color types, choose from: CSS Hex, CSS3 HSL, CSS3 RGB, Calibrated NSColor for HSB, Calibrated NSColor for RGB, Unit NSColor for CMYK, Unit NSColor for HSB, Unit NSColor for RGB, UIColor HSB
] Unlike most Mac color pickers, Sip has some extra power built in to handle dozens of color formats, including Open GL, AndrOid, CSS, NSColor for encoders and many others.
Did I mention Sip Sync? Work with color on a Mac notebook or iPhone version of Sip, and when you return to the Mac desktop, all the new colors are there.
