This little tool is awesome. It’s like the eyedropper in Photoshop, except that it works on any pixel of your screen and gives you the hex code for the color in your clipboard. Very cool!
How it works
- Move the mouse pointer to the Instant Eyedropper icon in the system tray.
- Press and hold the left mouse button and move the mouse pointer to the pixel whose color you want to identify.
- Release the mouse button.
That’s it. The clipboard now contains the color code – in HTML format (or any other format that you have previously specified). It can be pasted and used in any text or HTML editor or the Color Picker tool of Photoshop.
