Say, what will you do if you need a color’s code for web (also application) programming? Are you using a very
popular and commercial software like Adobe Photoshop or Adobe/Macromedia Flash and Dreamweaver to know the color’s code?
It’s no problem if you use [original] Adobe Photoshop or Adobe/Macromedia Flash and Dreamweaver to know the color’s code, but there’s an alternative software to pick/know a color’s code. A color picker freeware software is available on Windows and Linux, you can use it and save your money too ^^ (you needn’t a very expensive graphic editor software just for picking/knowing a color’s code, need you?).
K. Windows System
BrazuColor is a very complete colors picker software on Windows. We can know Visual Basic, Delphi, C, Java, Web HTML, and Photoshop colors’ code easily with BrazuColor. Another features are Palette, Color Capture, Image Magnification, Gradient Color and Big Color Grid.
A little weakness on BrazuColor is it works little slowly (not as fast as other color picker software). I think it isn’t too bad, because BrazuColor has a lot of color’s code (for web and application programming) features than other color picker software.
ColorPic is a simple and very fast software. If you only need a Websnap, Web HTML or Hex colors’ code, then this software is a good choice for you. Another features are Palette, Mixer (the color mixer of ColorPic is more better and complete than BrazuColor), and Magnify.
L. Linux System
The GIMP (http://www.gimp.org)
The GIMP is a free graphic editor software, therefore we can use many useful features (colors picker feature is included). The GIMP is usually installed on most Linux distro by default. Because of that, Linux users will have no worry to install a colors picker software on their system.
The GIMP is also available on Windows, so Windows users can use this software too.
gcolor is a simple and very fast software. If you only need a Web HTMLcolor’s code, then this software is a good choice for you. gcolor2 is already installed on Wolvix 1.1 (one of Linux distro) by default.
Now it’s all up to you to choose the color picker softwares.
By the way, after seeing the name of colors picker software, a funny question appeared in my mind : “What if a color picker software has name ColorJohohoho or JohohohoColor ^^?” “Splendid software !”
