Instant Eyedropper is a utility designed to help you identify color codes with minimum effort. The application supports various color code formats, takes a small amount of time to detect, and offers you the information you need, and automatically copies shade details to your clipboard.

This program lives on your taskbar, in the Hidden Icons panel. There are two ways to identify color codes: using drag-and-drop mode (drag apps icon over the area you wish to inspect) or by clicking on the app's icon and move your mouse cursor to the screen area you need to analyze. The program will offer you the accurate results you need almost instantly.

In the Options panel as well as the main menu of the program, you will find the list of supported color code formats. The app also provides you with an option for changing the resolution of the area you need to inspect (3x3, 5x5, 7x7 or 9x9). Another advantage is the fact that you can define a global hotkey for immediately revealing the color picking tool on your desktop.

One feature that's missing from this program is the ability to mark and keep track of your favorite color codes. Many color pickers provide you with this option to help you access the color code you need with ease, later when you need it. Furthermore, the utility doesn't keep a log of recent color code identifications.

In conclusion, it's up you to decide if it's worth installing this free app on your computer or not based on your requirements. Personally, I prefer using this program instead of other free color pickers because it's more intuitive and easier to handle.
