Piccol is a graphical tool to pick a pixel color from anywhere on the screen and then show the color details as

  • RGB decimal notation
  • RGB hex notation
  • HLS decimal notation
  • and as written text (e.g. "very saturated light blue")

The RGB and HLS values can also be altered via sliders to create a correspondingly colored pixel.

Image import

Images can be imported to piccol to analyze the image pixels.
