Colortypist is a fast, slim download that lets you experiment and find the HTML code for every color. It installs in seconds and helps you get the color you need even faster. It even has some neat features that will help you do more with that color once you find it, too.

The program comes in an executable file, so there's no need to install it. Colortypist is ready to go in seconds and sports a neat, unobtrusive layout. As you type in numbers, the colors pop up in full screen so you can get a good look at them. The program will guide you through the whole process to get you to the right combos. That makes it easier to find the exact color you want with only a few tries. Once you find it, you can set it as your wallpaper, copy the code automatically, or even see it as an RGB or integer code. The random button gives you a random color that can help inspire you to try new colors in your layout or design.

It's clear that this program was not only made for graphic designers, but by them, as well. It's stylish, smooth, and does exactly what you need it to in a matter of seconds. It's even portable so you can have it with you on a thumb drive and use it on any computer. If you do any work with colors or HTML, Colortypist is a phenomenal download to have.
