Editors' Review

by   / August 24, 2009

Pixeur offers artists a chance to capture a color they see on their computer screens. Designed for those who understand the technical details of color, this tool will appeal to anyone obsessed with color.

The program is a little confusing to understand, mostly because it completely lacks a Help file. Thankfully, there are on-screen instructions to aid users and the program's click-and-drag methods quickly become second nature. The program functions very simply. Users drag the circular icon from the Pixeur screen and roll it over a color they like on their screens. Once a user releases the mouse button that color comes up on the screen's spectrum and its values are listed on the RGB and CMYK scales. Users can save a color's results and can also look deeper by clicking on radio buttons that showcase the color's shading and brightness. This tool is mastered quickly and provides immediate results, which users will love. The program's finest special feature is its capability to alter the targeting icon users drag to select a color. Cycling through a circle, a crosshair and an ink dropper provide full control.

The program installs and uninstalls cleanly. While there is no Help file, users will quickly get a hang of this freeware program. We highly recommend Pixeur for artists and anyone interested in the infinite possibilities of color.
