Pick any pixel on the screen and get the color in RGB, HEX, HSL and HSV. Inspired by Windows Snipping Tool.
I often need or wish to use a color I see on my screen. Previously I would follow these steps: Make a screenshot of the area with the Windows Snipping Tool, open Microsoft Paint, paste in Paint, use the color selector tool to get the color of the pixel, open the color dialog, type the R number into the Windows Calculator, convert to HEX, write in notepad, type the G number into the calculator, convert to HEX, write in notepad, type B number into the calculator, convert to HEX and finally write that in notepad too.
Instead I just made the Picker Tool, same user interface, workflow and shortcut keys as the Windows Snipping Tool, to get my pixel color in seconds.
