I’ve just discovered Sip, a color picker app for Mac users. “Just discovered” since it’s been around for a while. I’ve seen reviews of the app older than a year, but eh, you can’t be on top of everything, can you.

Those reviews were mentioning the fact was coming at the price of $0.99, but today, it is free.
I’ve only started playing with it, but I love its simplicity.

You can set it up to use you preferred color formats, there are loads of shortcuts, and there’s also a Adobe Photoshop CC extension sending the picked color to Photoshops background color as shown here.

To have it running from startup (as it will disappear after reboot), go to System Preferences > Users & Groups > Login Items, press the + button and then choose Sip.

So long.
