Editors' Review

+
Never again will you have to take screenshots or pull up a color wheel to match color hues. Pixie lets you get the color values for any object, including for your desktop or for any window of any application. Once the program is installed and running, all you have to do is point the mouse cursor to a solid or text color. Pixie then displays the color values in a tiny window in several popular formats, including HTML color code, RGB and CMYK codes, HSV, and hex. Various hot keys make your work with Pixie more comfortable; for example, Ctrl Alt C copies the HTML value of a current color to your Windows clipboard. We loved the fact that, for complex images, you can magnify a 32-by-32 pixel area to choose a color from exactly the pixel you want. The program also displays the selected pixel and its corresponding X and Y coordinates. Pixie is a cool little program that makes it easy for users of all levels to instantly reproduce colors in their favorite programs or on their Web pages.

Nothing I can think of.

"The tool to have."

January 29, 2009  |  By twoarrow

 |  Version: Pixie 3.1

Pros

Some photo editing programs like Picasso does not have a way to get the RGB color codes. This tool is right on the screen in a small window and know matter where you move the pointer it will give you all the color info.

Cons

No cons about it.

Summary

A must if you design or write books and need a color.
