The Magnifier control will allow the user to magnify any part of the screen.





Once an area is magnified, the eyedropper can then be used to select colors. This will improve the ability to select colors from areas with lots of colors or from small icons.

Variable magnification levels

This feature allows the user to change the power of the magnifier. There are 16 magnification (1x - 16x). The user can change the level by spinning the mouse wheel while magnifying, or clicking on plus and minus buttons in the window.





Since the magnifying glass won't be used all the time, there will be a button to collpse and expand the dialog. This will prevent the application from taking up too much screen area.

Persistent custom colors in the custom color dialog

The common windows custom color picker dialog has 16 custom color locations. Color cop will remember the custom colors from session to session. In previous versions, the custom colors were only saved for as long as the program was open.

Color History

This feature remembers the last 7 colors selected by the eyedropper. The user can then revert back to any of the colors by clicking on them. This feature will be hidden if the dialog is in the collapsed state, but the colors will still be stored. Colors can be pushed onto the color history by right clicking while eyedropping.

Complementary color palette

Color Cop uses the RGB color model to describe colors. This feature first converts the RGB color model into HSL. HSL is a color model that describes colors based on Hue, Saturation, and Lightness. Once RGB has been converted to HSL, the values are shifted many times to produce a complementary color palette. There are 42 colors in the palette, which can be selected by clicking or dragging.

Hotkey support

For advanced users, there will be hotkeys as an alternative to the menu.

Control+3 Switch to 3 by 3 average sampling
Control+5 Switch to 5 by 5 average sampling

Mouse wheel support

Users can alter the red, green, or blue decimal values by spinning the mouse wheel. The control in focus will be decremented or incremented. Spinning the mouse wheel will increment or decrement by 1. Holding Control at the same time will increment or decrement by 5. Holding Shift at the same time will increment of decrement by 2. If the Snap to Websafe mode is on, it will increment or decrement by 51. Users can also zoom in and out by spinning the mouse wheel while magnifying.

Easy Move

Most applications can be moved around the screen by dragging on the title bar. This feature allows the user to click and drag the application by left clicking anywhere in the client area and dragging. This option is enabled by default, but can be disabled using the menu or hotkey.
