Couldn't be easier...

1) Go to http://jawjahboy.com/color-grabber/
2) Paste the full URL of the image that you want to check the color on and click "Enter"
3) Click once with the hand pointing finger on the color you want to check
4) Copy the produced hex color code from the box at the bottom

Really great tool to make sure that your website's colors all match and look professional.

Happy site building
Ed

There's also ColorZilla for Firefox, free here: http://www.colorzilla.com/firefox/. It sits at the bottom corner of the browser; just click to activate and move the eyedropper over any color on a web page or image. It gives you both RGB, Hex, coordinates and html/css on one line.

I'm still using Version 2.2, but see it's been updated several times. It's now 2.5.3 with even more features.

By the same author is this CSS Gradient Generator, http://www.colorzilla.com/gradient-ed... too.

Nice, thanks for sharing! Is there one for Google Chrome? Probably, they just got a new feature on Google Chrome V. 9 where you can have apps and stuff in addition to the extensions. https://chrome.google.com/webstore?hl...

Thanks,

Been using ColorZilla for ages... It's one of the sharpest tools in MY shed!
Somewhere along the line I missed the Gradient Generator.
Thanks Jean!
