Tools: EyeDropper Answers "What Color is That?"
"He was born with the gift of laughter, and the sense that the world was mad."
That opening from Sabatini's famous novel describes me; but he might have also said: "He was born with the gift of insight, but he couldn't tell red from green."
No longer color blind, I am now officially "chromatically challenged." But technology comes to the rescue. This excellent color-picking tool is easy to use: simply run the point over the image, and the color values appear in RGB and Hexadecimal.
Even if you have "perfect pitch" for colors, this is a handy tool.
