What The Hex? is a free and open-source colour picking tool, just like the eyedrop tool in image editors such as GIMP. But unlike those editors, What The Hex? is designed to provide you with the Hex or RGB information you're looking for in the fastest way possible.
- Pressing the PrintScreen key
- Opening your image editor
- Pasting in your image
- Clicking the eyedrop tool
- Open What The Hex?
- There is no Step 2
What The Hex? automatically takes and displays a screenshot when opened, allowing you to click away at that little pixel and get the desired Hex and RGB information.
The latest version of What The Hex? is v1.04. Installers can be downloaded here.
The project is written in C#, with the .Net 4.0 framework.
- Easier panning/scrolling of screenshot using right-click, the spacebar, or similar, like in The GIMP.
Information about the latest version of What The Hex? and the changes introduced can be found here.
