Pixie: Identify screen colors pixel by pixel


Oh, I love this little tool. Pixie is a tiny little program that allows you to identify colors on the screen so you can create graphics and documents that match. I use it all the time to replicate the look and feel of my clients’ web pages in the documents I create.

You can keep it running all the time or simply call upon it when you need it. The default is that it sits on top of your other programs all the time. I find this annoying, so I turn it on and off. But it’ll show the codes for the color of a pixel so you can replicate a color scheme.

One of my favorites.
