Getting the right color code match
« on: January 03, 2011, 09:37:26 pm »
Can anyone think of an easier way to match an existing color code (html code).  I use gimp and coming really close but trying to match a sidebar color which originally was in a .gif image template.  

Any ideas would be appreciated ....have thought about cropping a section of the gif and trying to use it to fill a background but would rather fill the background using the actual color.

How do you mean "coming really close" with Gimp? Something is really wrong if it doesn't match, maybe browser using different gamma level or something. You can always take a printscreen screenshot if not opening original image, then reading the pixel color from cursor. MsPaint can do it too but it only shows rgb in 255,255,255 format which would need a calculator or something to convert to hex.
