The Picker allows you to quickly retrieve a color anywhere on the screen. Whether it's on your browser, Photoshop, or whatever.

Colorsbook is a full-fledged application. It allows you to store your colors, categorize them, and easily retrieve them. It is destined to mature over time. Cool tip: you can save color from colorpicker with CMD+S or CTRL+S!

With the shades, you can find the perfect color you need. You have a chromatic bar, a natural color bar and a shadow bar.

Opacity [WIP]

This feature is a bit special. It allows you to render the application transparent. This can be useful to see the appearance of a transparent color.

Focus Mode

Need to compare a color or clean up the interface? This feature is for you, this will hide the sliders and make the menu more transparent.

Magic Color [WIP]

This functionality is still under development. Currently, it allows you to display the first color that is in your clipboard. This works with hexadecimal and RGB codes


A traditional feature, it allows you to display a color randomly.
