ColorPix: Find a color value

March 17, 2009

I recently wrote about how to find a color value using PaintShop Pro. Then I remembered that I had a really simple (and free) little utility program that also gave me color values — including CMYK — just by hovering over an area of color (1 pixel is enough!).

The utility is called ColorPix and you can get it from many download sites, or direct from the ColorSchemer people at http://www.colorschemer.com/colorpix_info.php. You don’t have to install anything — just run it and it works.
