I am creating things such as, Google Adsense widgets and would like to have the RGB or HEX values of the colors used in my template rather then eyeballing and trying to guess which colors they are. Is there an easy way of finding out this information? I've tried View-->Page Source from my browser but could not find them there. Your help is always appreciated ':-)

Hi there,

If you're using FireFox, there's a really cool add-on that will help you to find the colors - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire...

I did give it a try and it works great!

Marije,

Wow, this is going to be one of my favorite new tools. At first I did not know how to use it then discovered the eyedropper on the lower left of the screen. Press shift/esc and you can get any color from a webpage! Thank you for sharing this tool.

Do you have anything for us IE users?

I'm looking for the heading color of template "Atomohost" so I can make a custom header graphic.

Please let me know when you can. Thanks so much.

Hello,
Sorry I don't have one for Internet Explorer, but, you could convert to Firefox, it is a free download and works wonderfully. Here is a link if you want to give it a try: Download Firefox.

Kind Regards,
