How do I capture a color?

To capture colors using your Pico make sure you have the Pico App downloaded and paired with your smartphone.


  • Choose the surface you wish to capture
  • Place Pico directly onto a surface
  • Press the button and wait for the indicator light to stop flashing
  • Watch the color swatch appear on your screen
  • Interact, favorite or share your color swatch!

Important: Pico is intended to work on opaque, non-emissive and non-fluorescent surfaces. For best results, place Pico against a surface so that no ambient light enters the sensor port.
