    Hey guys, found this REALLY useful tool. Very useful for photoshoppers or web designers.

    What is Instant Eyedropper

    Instant Eyedropper is a free software tool for webmasters that will identify and automatically paste to the clipboard the HTML color code of any pixel on the screen with just a single mouse click.
    Save your time

    Identification the color code of an object on the screen is usually an involved, multistep process: You press the Print Screen key to copy a screenshot to the clipboard, load a graphics-editing program, create a new file, paste the screenshot from the clipboard, zoom in on the object, use the "Pick Color" tool, and finally copy the HTML code of the color to the clipboard.
    Webmasters may repeat this operation many times a day. Just imagine how much time can be saved by using Instant Eyedropper to do the same thing With a Single Click!
    How it works


    1. Move the mouse pointer to the Instant Eyedropper icon in the system tray.[​IMG]
    2. Press and hold the left mouse button and move the mouse pointer to the pixel whose color you want to identify.[​IMG]
    3. Release the mouse button.
    That's it. The clipboard now contains the color code - in HTML format (or any other format that you have previously specified). It can be pasted and used in any text or HTML editor or the Color Picker tool of Photoshop.

    Thanks BlackSeng. I have moved this thread to the Graphic
    Design Downloads section since the regular Member Downloads
    section is more for IM ebooks, tutorials, videos, and software.

    That's really cool. I'm sick of having to print screen just to get the right colour code. My desktops littered in crappy jpegs.

    Cheers OP, this will come in handy.

    Why not use browser plugin? Colorzilla for firefox, and bunch for chrome.
