Anyone who's done some tweaking to their web page design will love this handy color tool. Ever cruise the web and spot *exactly* a certain color you want for your own page? But dang, what a pain to figure out the right hex code for it. Or maybe you want to know the RGB value of a background color or just a single pixel on your screen?

Just activate the Eyedropper to quickly get the exact color information you need. No fussing with screen captures and then sleuthing with your graphics editor. Eyedropper does it in just a couple clicks. It's easily configured and activated/deactivated from the system tray icon. Piece o' cake.

This new version of Eyedropper adds these neat options and features too: clipboard support for easy hex code insertions; RGB info can be displayed in percentages; support for CMYK color space; zoom setting; option to freeze window and/or color setting; display of screen coordinates; selectable fonts; and measuring or distance and area.

I've been trying like mad to match up my purples and pale yellows, and Eyedropper was the perfect time-saving solution. It's free, simple to use, and comes either in a small Zip file (200K), or a larger file with InstallShield (896K) if you prefer. I don't know that you'd need support for this, but the author does make upgrades based on user input.
