If that’s you, read no further. But if pixels are important to you as a graphic designer, web designer, or developer, then you know the value of counting pixels, measuring pixels, and how color plays an important part in pixels. Here’s a Mac tool that counts pixels and checks pixel color.
Measuring And Loupe Magnifying
Nearly every Mac graphic design app has built-in guides and rulers and a way to view and count pixels on the screen.
Pixel Tools does that, too, but also comes with an array of useful tools for designers and developers that function anywhere on the Mac’s screen.
Yes, this clever and inexpensive pixel tracking utility tracks the onscreen pointer and magnifies as you move (up to 64 times). Any distance between two pixels on the Mac’s screen can be measured.
Plus, it’s a power user’s dream tool and nearly every functionality has a keyboard shortcut (which can work even when Pixel Tools isn’t the frontmost app).
Wait. There’s more. Pixel Tools can find the RGB or HSB numerical value of any pixel, as well as meatier distances (either Cocoa style of positive Y up, or traditional style of positive Y down).
Pixel Tools works on Mac with multiple displays and size, locks the onscreen pointer’s position on the screen, and lets you hide controls and rulers as needed.
The default setting is for Pixel Tools to float over other apps, but there’s an option to behave like a normal app (window in the background), and it can even see underneath itself so it even measures the screen when pixels cannot be seen.
Nicely done and rather inexpensive considering the list of features.
