---------------------------[ Color Cop v5.3 ]-------------------------- Color Cop is 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. Color Cop will convert RGB decimal values to Hexadecimal color codes. It has color code support for HTML Hex, Delphi Hex, PowerBuilder, Visual Basic Hex, Visual C++ Hex, RGB int, and RGB float. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Color Cop Website: http://www.datastic.com/tools/colorcop/ Color Cop Download: http://www.datastic.com/tools/colorcop.zip Color Cop is free, but if you wish to express your appreciation for the time and resources I've expended developing and supporting it, I do accept and appreciate donations. If you wish to make one please go to: http://www.datastic.com/tools/colorcop/donate.php -------------- What's new in v5.3 -------------- * Magnify while eyedropping This option is on by default and allows the user to see a magnified area while eyedropping. The pixel that is being selected will appear in the magnifier window with a black square around it. * Use Cross Hair cursor the standard windows cross hair cursor can be used in lieu of the eyedropper to select colors. * Relative position measurements If you press the Control key while eyedropping the coordinates will be set to zero (0,0). When you drag the mouse to a new location the coordinates values will be relative to the point where you pressed control. This is very useful if you want to measure how pixels a certain object is. Note that if you get a reading of 8,8 the area you just measured is really 9,9 because the zero row and column are included. * Detect WebSafe color With this option enabled, color cop will indicate if the color selected by the eyedropper is WebSafe or not. * Allow Multiple Instances This is an option which allows the user to restrict only one instance of color cop from running at once, or allow multiple copies to run. *** Color Cop Features *** - Convert RGB Decimal values to HTML Hexadecimal - Custom Color Picker - Eyedropper - Always on Top - Persistent settings - Convert Hexadecimal to RGB Decimal values - Random Color Generator - Reverse Color Option - Magnifier with 1x-16x zoom - 3 by 3 and 5 by 5 average sampling - Snap to WebSafe - Detect WebSafe color - Minimize to systray - HTML, Delphi, Visual Basic, Visual C++ and Powerbuilder Hex color support - Mouse wheel support - EasyMove - Upper and Lower case Hex - Collapseable dialog - Color History - Complementary Color Palette - Relative position measurements * Convert RGB Decimal values to HTML Hexadecimal Depending on the Mode, the Red, Green, and Blue values are converted to the hex color code. These values can be typed in manually or selected with the eyedropper. If the user spins the mouse wheel while the focus is on one of the controls it will increment or decrement depending on the direction. Holding CONTROL will +/- by 5. Holding SHIFT will +/- by 2. * Custom Color Picker This is the windows common color picker dialog. It can be used to slightly alter the current color. Double-clicking on the color preview window will bring up this dialog. The 16 custom color slots in the dialog are remembered from session to session. * Eyedropper This control can be dragged around the screen to select any color. If you want to ease the selection, use the Magnifier first. * Always on Top When this option is checked, the program will stay on top of other windows. This allows Color Cop to be used in any window. * Persistent Settings This feature saves your settings to ColorCop.dat. These settings are reloaded the next time you start the application. If you delete ColorCop.dat the settings will be lost. Color Cop will remember screen position, last color, color history, mode, sampling rate, etc. * Convert Hexadecimal to RGB Decimal values If Color Cop is in HTML or Delphi mode. Hex codes can be pasted/typed in and the the Color and RGB values will be given. This is not available for Visual Basic, Visual C++ or PowerBuilder modes. * Random Color Generator Generates a Random color. Control+Z is the Hotkey. * Reverse Color Option Selecting this option will reverse the current color. Black will become white, etc. * Magnifier with 1x-16x zoom For areas of the screen with small icons or lots of colors, the Magnifier can be used to enlarge the area and then select colors. The magnification level can be changed by spinning the mouse wheel while magnifying or by clicking on the plus and minus buttons which are located to the right of the magnifier * 3 by 3 and 5 by 5 average sampling This feature allows the eyedropper to select an average of a 3 by 3 or a 5 by 5 pixel matrix. * Snap to WebSafe Some designers are forced to use the 216 color websafe palette. When this options is enabled, only websafe colors can be selected. If a color is selected and it is not websafe, it will be converted to the nearest websafe color. Websafe colors have RGB decimal values which are multiples of 51 or zero.(0, 51, 102, 153, 204, and 255) * Minimize to systray When this option is checked, Color cop will be minimized to the system tray rather than the taskbar. * HTML, Delphi, Visual Basic, Visual C++ and Powerbuilder Hex color support There are now many Hex modes to choose from. Programmers can now use Color Cop. If you would like another mode added, email email@example.com * Mouse wheel support The mouse wheel can be used to increment or decrement the Red, Green, or Blue values. It will also allow the user to zoom while magnifying. * EasyMove This option allows the user to move the window by left clicking and dragging anywhere in the Color Cop window. * Upper and Lower case Hex Some people prefer their hex in uppercase and some in lowercase. * Collapseable dialog This feature allows the application to compact itself to allow more screen area to select colors from. * Color History This feature remembers the last 7 colors selected. Colors can be pushed into the color history by right clicking while eyedropping. * Complementary Color Palette The color palette uses the HSL color model to generate 42 colors that complement the selected color. Colors in this pallete can be selected by left clicking. *** Color Cop FAQ *** - How are these HTML RGB Hexadecimal Triplets used? Here is an HTML example. The other programming hex codes should speak for themselves. <html><title>This is a sample</title> <body bgcolor="#ffffff">This makes the background color WHITE. <font color="#ffff00">This is YELLOW text.</font> <table width="100%" bgcolor="#0000ff"> <tr> <td>This Background is Blue!!</td> </tr></table> </body></html> - How do I change options?? I don't see a menu? Right Click in the color cop window to get a pop up menu. For other problems please use Color Cop Help.
