Color Cop 5.4.3

by James 1 December 2008 2 Comments

Color Cop is a good freeware color identifier and picker for webmasters and programmers. 


As you might have seen I have a new theme for my website now after moving it to paid hosting. Every day I’m trying to improve the desing and having a color picker is a great help. That’s how I found Color Cop and I can say I’m very happy that I came across this tiny freeware program.

It’s very simple: you have an eyedropper and a magnifier, you can pick and identify colors and the program will provide the respective color code. It supports HTML Hex, Delphi Hex, PowerBuilder, Visual Basic Hex, and Visual C++ Hex. You can either install it or use it as standalone.

 Has a standalone version.

 Simple, tiny and effective.

 No obvious flaws here.



Color Cop is another one of those tiny giant freeware programs, simple but effective, a real help for any webmaster or programmer.

    You have to try Instant Eyedropper. It is without a doubt the best program for this. It fits right into your toolbar (but only when you turn it on, so it’s not too pesky) and is very easy to use. Gives you info in many different formats too (HTML, RGB, HSI, Hex, etc). So helpful.

    Great Website though!
