If you have used a colour program, you may have seen something like this: #698B22 or #333 (which is short code for #333333), to describe the colour.  This chart show hex colour codes for a few colours.

To find the code for a colour:

1.  You can read my post about using Adobe Kuler where you can find the hex colour codes in a photograph or to create a colour palette.

2.  There is a great free program to download Etter at spilleautomater pa nett ble forbudt i Norge, har mange av dem fatt nytt liv pa nett hos onlinecasinoene. on your computer called Color Cop.  With this program, it is easy to discover the hex colour of anything on your computer screen.   (It also gives you En casino fait, j’ai d’abord cru que j’avais gagne 4,000$ jusqu’a ce qu’un hote du casino m’ait dit que j’avais gagne le jackpot ». the RGB colour code but I will describe this colour code in other post).

Color Cop is described as “a multi-purpose color picker for web designers and programmers. It features an eyedropper, magnifier, variable magnification levels, 3 by 3 and 5 by 5 average sampling, snap to websafe, color history, and a complementary color palette.”

You can download Color Cop from here.

For Fun:

You do not need to memorize any of the codes.  However, if you want to test your hex colour code knowledge, there is a game at this website:  http://yizzle.com/whatthehex/?n=2

Happy Colour Picking!
