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.

zis is a quite nice app :)

there is a really nice app for firefox, with which you can get the color of a pic, Div area nearly everything (but just in Firefox itself and the window of Firefox :) )

ColorZilla called, you can find it here:[link]

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. :)
