This is a useful little tool that takes the guesswork out of
duplicating colors. Run the program, click anywhere on the screen,
and the program will return the RGB values and HTML hex code of the
pixel you clicked on. Press F5 to freeze the information long
enough to make note of it (since the slightest breeze could change
your mouse position). Or use F6 to transfer the current color?s hex
code value to the Clipboard.
Theoretically, Color Detector will also tell you the name of the
color you're clicking on, but don't get too attached to that idea.
Sure, every once in a while, you'll see "Black," "White," or even
"Blue" flit by in the color Name field. But the vast majority of
colors you'll land on will yield a result of "not found."
