One of the UX email newsletters I receive included a link to Instant Eyedropper
. The product website describes this Windows software as "a free software tool for webmasters that will identify and automatically paste to the clipboard the HTML color code of any pixel on the screen with just a single mouse click."
I haven't used it yet, but given my reliance on the eyedropper tool when tweaking images and the frustrations I've had trying to match colors in HTML prototypes when I haven't been given codes, I'll definitely be downloading it. I hope it might be useful to those of you designing for the Web. If anyone is already using this tool, please share any reviews, limitations we should know, or raves.
