If you have an alternative to the Digital Color Meter on the Mac, which can put the selected color directly on the clipboard, then the app could help you pikka like. The so-called Color Picker from Ruslan Sayfutdinov is ideal for everyone who defines colors across apps and does not want to copy the corresponding code by hand. Pikka copies the color to the clipboard so that you can achieve a better workflow with Adobe Photoshop / Illustrator / InDesign / Lightroom, Affinity Photo, Affinity Designer or similar.
Not only hexadecimal color codes can be determined with Pikka and copied to the clipboard in order to then use them in the preferred image processing or designer program. On the official website of the developer it says: "Select the color format you want to use. Choose from: HEX, RGB, HSB, Android XML, Adroid RGB (A), UIColor RGB, UIColor HSB and many more.“- the Mac app Pikka also comes with a so-called“ Color Dock ”, which makes the selected colors even easier to access. There is also a separate folder structure for (frequently used) colors.
If you have to do with colors, color codes and so on on a daily basis, you will probably download Pikka for the price of 3,99 euros. I think that this app can improve the workflow in a way that flushes the small fee back into it. Anyone who wants to download Pikka as a free trial version can do so on the manufacturer's website to do. If you want to get started with the full version on the Mac, you can also get Pikka in the Mac App Store for 3,99 euros.
Are you still struggling with the DigitalColor Meter or are you already using Pikka? Or maybe you swear by a completely different app that knows how to immeasurably improve the workflow on the Mac? Feel free to leave a comment on the topic :)
