In giving tips and lessons to fellow bloggers, the question I am asked most is: What color is that? Yes, of course it’s red, but which red? Again and again I have delighted in showing people Pixie and seeing the excitement when they realize just how easy it is to find the color they are looking for.
When I create logos, headers, newsletter layouts, labels, or web site designs, I’m often given an image to start with. Pixie makes it easy for me to find colors from that image to use in my design, ensuring the design and image don’t clash.
Pixie runs on my computer almost 24/7. The only time it is turned off, and has to be restarted, is when I reboot my laptop. I use it that much.
This amazing little tool is free, and can be downloaded at Nattyware.com. (Pixie Color Picker) It will instantly show you the HEX, HTML, RGB, CMYK, and HSV color numbers for any color you mouse-over.
