Color picker

Post by hannesd » Wed May 31, 2006 5:50 pm

Hi!

What about a simple color picker, which displays the color value (RGB, HTML hex value) under the current position of the mouse cursor in the status line.

May I suggest to add an option to put that function on the right-click?

Also, it would be good if the color picker would display floating point values correctly.

Thanks!

hi,
actually it iwould be nice to see the colors always in the statusbar (view)..
the "view color information" is also useful, but only for a quick look it would be easier to just take a quick look at the bar.
maybe just the common rgb values?
cheers

Wasted time, IMHO. You can't beat this little freeware tool:

+1, yes an option menu to allow to always show the colors in the statusbar (view) is a good idea !
But for me, it would be better if a new small external color picker sofware XnViewColorPicker (as XnViewMediaDetector.exe) is created (called in xnview with an hotkey and/or menu, and with copy & paste functions).

The Colour picker would be more complete if...
a.) the colour value could be copied to the clipboard for pasting it in HTML code for example (perhaps using context menu).
b.) the colour value could be picked as background colour.

Yes, good idea too, but by this way, you can not pick a color in the background or in an other windows area without a print screen.
By an external XnviewPickercolors.exe file you can.

I use ColorPic.

IMHO its functionality is without peer, so it lives happily ever after in my XnView toolbar.
