Color Picker From Image

Our Color Picker From Image online tool makes it easy to extract precise color codes from any digital image with just a few clicks.

Simply select or paste an image and click anywhere to get the name and code for that exact shade of color. The images are never uploaded or stored anywhere; the color picker runs entirely in your browser.

Our image color picker also automatically generates a palette of prominent colors from the image and shows them below the image. By default, 8 colors are shown, but you can increase it up to 24 or decrease it down to 3.
