Grabbing color from video using freeware get.color

This little free application, get.color, allows you to get the html color code of the current pixel the mouse-cursor is hovering above by holding a selected hotkey pressed – simply double click the left mouse button to copy the html RGB color code into the clipboard (in the format of, for example, “#247ca4” without the quotation marks). Perfect for use when designing webpages, copying stubborn colors between different Photoshop clones or the likes of it. See screenshots for examples of how it can grab color from webpage or indeed anything you have on your screen (video..etc. perhaps with the exception of DirectX games, I don’t game currently so can’t tell you, update: user-comment from Ekkoreverb suggests that it does not work and may indeed bring DirectX games down so guess its a no luck thing)

The freeware app has no installer and can be manually placed in the Window’s “Startup” folder if you like. It starts a little color-pipette icon in the traymenu which you can rightclick to edit the config file or to shut it down. Also, the default hotkey is F2, simply hold it pressed to see get.color in action

You can download the archive from here:
get.color.zip (version:2009-08-29) (thanks to Citif.dk for hosting!)

Contents of archive must all be unzipped in same folder for the freeware utility to work. The software is provided as freeware if anyone should be seriously interested in improving upon it then I’ll be happy to Open Source it.
