A very cool color search tool - colors from image

January 19, 2015

Hi guys and girls! Happy Monday! Well, I like my job so much that I don't mind it being Monday again. Sorry for all you folks having a hard time starting up on Mondays.

I'm going to start off this week with a quick tip on a fantastic color searching/determining tool that I just found out about last week. I might call myself a designer, I mean, I have to put a description to what it is I'm doing, but that doesn't mean I know all there is to know about designing. Sometimes my clients actually give me very useful tips. And so did a lady last week.

We were working on a set of social icons for her and she needed them in colors to match other items on her website. But unfortunately the designer of these items hadn't given her the color codes of these items. Of course I could have spend some time trying to match the colors, but then she gave me a tip that made my job a whole lot easier. She knew of a program that could detect the color of an image and then let you know which HEX code corresponds with that color. Hallelujah!

The program is still in its Beta version, but it worked fine for me. You can find it over here: http://html-color-codes.info/colors-from-image/

All you have to do is upload your source image, click on the color in the image you would like to find the code for and the program will give it to you. Fantastic! This just saved me a ton of work in various projects.
And maybe it will help out other people as well. 

Till soon!
