    Color plays such an important part in building sites and I used to waste so much time fiddling about trying to decide on the right color, often only to find it's not websafe.

    We had a rave about color pickers awhile ago and since, I've come across this really cool color schemer, free download to try and it's only $25.00 for the full program...once you try it you'll be sold...btw it's not an aff program

    Not only can you plan your colors and do heaps of things, but there is a nifty little color eye dropper picker, so if you come across a color you like, just use the eyedropper and pesto, there it is

    Plenty more features, but this is by far the coolest for me.

    How important is it to use "web safe" colors? From my understanding, most people can now view all the colors on their browsers.

    Thanks Mike
    But one of the reasons I love this tool is because if I see a color combo I like online, I can just use the eyedropper to get the colors.
    Or working to match colors in a photo, it's a no brainer.

    FFoc, presto is a great color, much like pesto

    Soundbwoy, there are lots of color tuts on the site that explain how colors vary from monitor to monitor, very informative reading.

    I wrote a simple color picker in javascript (a webpage) six years ago. Features:

    - choose between websafe colors or true RGB
    - show 5 chosen colors next to each other for comparison
    - displays both hex value and decimal value of chosen colors, in form text field, ready to cut and paste
    - palett with websafe colors, clickable
    - 3 bars for true rgb colors, clickable (this was buggy on NN3 back then)

    If anybody is interested I could throw up a website somewhere with the page, just have to doublecheck it first for compability with post1996 browsers ...

    (it's actually good, I'm using it quite a lot )

    Great tool idea MouseJockey.

    We also have another tool that can aid you.

    In developing your website it can be very useful to know the hexadecimal values of your RGB colors and vice versa.

    Example: If you need to match a graphics color to your background all you'd need to do is find out the RGB value of the graphic in your graphics program and convert it to Hexadecimal. On the other hand, if you already have a page designed and you'd like to make a header graphic for your site you could take the Hexadecimal background color and convert it to RGB for use in your graphics program.

    Here's the generator,

    One of the best tools I've come accross is:

    http://www.iconico.com/colorpic/index.asp

    You have to download it. You can use it to get the code for any colors you see on the web.
