Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

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.
