Picked colors can be copied to clipboard in multiple formats
Hexadecimal notation - #rrggbb
Three-digit RGB notation - rgb(red, green, blue)

Oversampling with five falloff types
Multiple pixel values are averaged to help picking colors from sources with noise, patterns and etc, where each pixel is different and overall color is produced by different amounts of particular color

Create lightness and/or saturation variations
Create harmonious colors

gpick not only can run on Linux but also can run on windows based on GTK+ libraries.
