Compact and extended user interface
To pick a colour and its code, you should choose the desired format in the code format list, then pin the mouse cursor anywhere on your screen and then press the hotkey to easily capture that specific colour. The default hotkey is Alt+X.
Just Color Picker allows you to run in two different interfaces. Allowing you to easily capture the colours of your screen. All the colours you have picked since you launched the program are displayed in the colour list on the right window side. This way, you can select any previous colour you’ve picked since the program start.
If you want more control, you can use extended user interface. This way you will see more information about picked colours. From this window, you can easily edit colours or even see a few colours that may be a good combination with the last-picked or currently edited colour.
