Colour Pickers

Did you know that the OS X colour picker has a plugin framework? If not, I suggest you add these great colour pickers to your system-wide colour panel.

Panic’s Developer Color Picker

Skala Color

Skala Color Picker

Skala Color is a compact and feature-rich OS X color picker that works with a huge variety of formats, covering everything you’re likely to need for web, iOS, Android, and OS X development — Hex, CSS RGBA, CSS HSLA, UIColor, NSColor and more. It also automatically recognises colors copied to the clipboard, presenting them as a swatch that can be applied with a single click. The hue and opacity sliders let you quickly target rough values, then fine tune with 4× the precision.
