"great program but installed malware on my computer"

March 03, 2013  |  By skitlem

 |  Version: Pixie 4.1

Pros

My rating is not for pixie, I love and use this program a ton

Cons

my rating is for the fact that after installing my computer had several new items running in the background from "conduit" it also restarted my browser and installed a new search bar. final and most irritating is the fact that it hijacked my browser home page. had to do a computer restore to get fix it

Summary

great program just don't install it from this source

"Perfect Color Sampler with no install required."

December 18, 2012  |  By bguertin

 |  Version: Pixie 4.1

Pros

This lightweight non-installing program is perfect for getting the RGB and HTML color codes. It works much like the eye dropper function in other programs but it is more accurate and reports the value at the end of your pointer. When done simply close the program no uninstall required. Useful and very small memory foot print.

Cons

I did not have any issues used this program on Windows Vista and Windows 7.

"I love my Pixie!"

August 11, 2012  |  By Mysticmisha

 |  Version: Pixie 4.1

Pros

I design pages on the web and the Pixie makes is so easy to match my colours. It is so small you don't even know you have it until you turn it on. So cool!

Cons

Careful when you download. Click you are not interested in all the extra crap they want to put in your computer. Click Custom download.
That's it!

Summary

I love my pixie!

"I'd be lost without it."

December 13, 2010  |  By Ritergal

 |  Version: Pixie 4.1

Pros

I've been using Pixie for about five years from XP through Vista to 7. It's one of the first apps to go on a new machine. As tiny as it is, it keeps getting better with new features.

Cons

None that I've found. It's clumsy with Microsoft products because they don't accept HTML code input. Microsoft color picker is inherently awkward.

Summary

Precise, pixel-perfect color matching in HEX, HTML, RGB, CMYK AND HSV. I especially appreciate the hotkey copy function for HTML values.
I love that it operates independently, across other apps, so I can grab a color from a webpage and pop it into Photoshop or a web editor.
The new color mixer and magnifier options rock.

"FANTASTIC !!!!!!!"

December 02, 2010  |  By RWHWTB

 |  Version: Pixie 4.1

Pros

It does exaclty what is advertised - allows you to know the exact color code of any onscrenn object in a millisecond! Never have to guess again - it really simplifies web and print design color code crossover issues as well.

Cons

None whatsoever.

Summary

Small, easy, delivers, makes design life easier.

"Just what I was looking for"

September 09, 2010  |  By epantel

 |  Version: Pixie 4.1

Pros

It does just what I need.

Cons

Has some problem with Show/Hide. If you let it get out of sight (To StatusBar), you won't be able to use it anymore till you restar your computer.
Also the letters are very small. With a 15' screen monitor I needed to use a lent.

Summary

Very necessary and very useful. But tends to disappear just when you need it.
