Add Desktop Color Picking support

To add the free desktop colorpicking support, install the UI.Vision XModule. The XModule is a small native app that helps Colorfish to take the screenshot. It is available for Windows, Mac and Windows. If you only want to pick colors inside the web browser, installing this app is not required. It is only needed for the desktop color picker feature.

How to select colors on the desktop?

Whenever no website is loaded, then the Colorfish eye dropper tool is automatically in desktop screenshot modus. So you can open a new tab, or go e. g. to chrome://extensions/ - then the Colorfish icon turns blueish. This is the sign that Colorfish will take a desktop screenshot.Then the screenshot displayed inside the browser, and now you can pick to color from within the desktop screenshot image.

Or select “Desktop Text Capture” from the Colorfish right-click menu.
