Tiny Color Picker XP by starvingartist Tiny Color Picker XP by starvingartist
A skin for Switch, the feature-packed color picker by Rory Primrose. Quickly grab the HTML color value of any pixel on your screen. (Download Switch 1.7.0)

I've been using it personally while working on deviantART v5, so I thought it might be cool to share it. Works great side-by-side with Photoshop. It's also tiny so it doesn't get in your way.

The titlebar icons from left to right: On Top, Switch Options & Close.

The link is dead and the programmer's page doesn't go back to 2002 when the program seems to have been released.

Ooooh, nice, I had no idea there was a quick way to do this without saving the file then using Photoshop to open it, I'm gonna like this.

Wait, by picking colors, you mean pick colors off the screen or what?

Oh how fantastic is this! I will have a much easier time designing journal skins that blend with the DA colors :w00t:

This is much easier than copy and pasting a screen shot of an image on photoshop to find out what the color is.

This should be the default skin. When I first loaded up Switch I got lost. I spent some time trying to click on the HEX|RGB text expecting them to do something. :lol: And after all, it's Windows, so even better. And lastly, the buttons are intuitively in the right place. Good stuff. :)

nicely done! I'm a fan of colorpad though, but i guss that's probably because I found it before any other picker. Again, good stuff!

Thanks! I really enjoy ColorPad's simplicty as well (I've made a couple skins for it in the past). =)

Personally, I think it's Switch's support for the HSL color space (and being able to tweak colors darker/lighter, or desaturating/saturating) that made me switch (er, no pun intended). It's become indispensable for my little web design workflow =)
