Fun color tools! Ever seen a picture from which you wanted to extract the colors? There’s a nifty tool for doing so at http://www.pic2color.com/ .
Is very simple. Go to the site and enter the URL of an image. (You can also click on the Flickr logo and get a random picture from Flickr.) To test the site I went to Dooce.com and got a picture of her dog, Chuck, with a Dora the Explorer balanced on his head. (At http://www.dooce.com/photos/dailyphoto/02_16_2007.jpg if you want.)
After a few moments (it’s a bit of a slow loader) I got a page with a smaller version of the picture and a color palette underneath. Click on a color for the color’s hex value. Clicking on the Finetune button gives you a popup with palette suggestions and tools for adjusting the color.
