Color Picker - Show Numeric Values

Recommended Posts

Please show the color numeric values as you move the Color Picker over the image. Paint Shop Pro has this feature and it is very useful. Perhaps the value shown (RGB, CMYK, etc) could be set in Preferences.

Love Affinity Photo on my PC.  Thank you for your consideration.

Local Colour Picker in Colour/Swatches/etc.



has specific cursor (magnifying glass) with colour value.




Standard Colour Picker Tool



has only crosshair cursor.



This is an inconsistent solution - magnifier with colour value is better.

Yes - The Standard Color Picker needs numeric values.  I use it as a quick way to see if, and where, I have any blown out areas (all white) when retouching photos.
