Frequently Asked Questions

Can I choose a different default color format?

Yes you can! You can choose the default color format, along with two other preferred formats in ColorSlurp's preferences.

The magnifier only picks colors from my desktop background

Due to the new security features of Mac OS Catalina, you must must enable screen recording for ColorSlurp in your system preferences.

Go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy Tab > Screen Recording and check the checkbox for ColorSlurp. That should fix the magnifier.

Why does a color change when using the CMYK sliders?

CMYK is a color format used primarily in the printing industry. RGB and CMYK are two different ways of representing colors, and each has a different gamut (or range) of colors they support. CMYK supports fewer colors than RGB. This means that an RGB color can't always be represented in CMYK because the color is not within the CMYK gamut's range of values.

Why do picked colors not always match the original?

Most likely it's a color profile mismatch. Click here for more information.
