      This Rocks

      I finaly had some time to play with color customizing this weekend and thought something like this would be VERY helpful. I had planned to make one myself, but decided to see if someone had beat me to it.

      Looks like they did.

      Thanks tubedogg!

            How many not used this yet??!! ''Must Have''

            Suggestion ... and this has helped me a lot .......... go get or find a small mini app called Colorpad ..... only 135k ..... in fact I can easily send it if you want ........ just email me ........

            It allows you to set up any RGB combination and gives hex val at bottom. If you move mouse to left or right of the hex value you'll go thru a whole hue change on a common theme ....... excellent for gaining a complementary range of cols. That'd do good for the blue problem.

            At my site I have used this method for three variants on a green theme ...... all based on one initial RBG combination ..... then that ''ratio'' is maintained thru the hue range.

            Other vitally good feature ....... put mouse cursor over the small col window in Colorpad, left click and wait briefly .... a cross appears ... keeping left mouse button down ... drag this anywhere on screen and get immediate col readout from any pixel!! It's an ''eyedropper'' facility that's all but .. so easy.

            Hope this helps many .. it sure makes my life easier ... full marks to whoever made this little utility.

              As colorpad is very hard to find and download, I found out this nice page with a lot of freeware proggies:

              Hope helps.

                That sounds familiar to colorcop, a great little application that I don't know what I did without. It is less than 50k to download and you can find it here..


                and a bunch of other useful tools at

                  Thx Pfil ... yes I have now got Colorcop .. great lil app'

                  Point I'd make tho re colorpad ... if you set up your RGB ratio ... then dragging left or roght on hex value arrows gives whole hue range .. that's v useful for picking complementaries for a site.

                    I downloaded Colorcop just to take a look, but I still prefer Huey.

                      Must take a look at Huey.

                      I had a request from [email protected] for a copy of ColorPad ...... which I duly sent.

                      Not a word of thanks in reply ......... now that pisses me.!!

                        thanks ACB

                        A quick search for ColorPad shows that they were being hosted on a site that went down in Oct.
                        Any chance I can get you to send a copy to me here

                        It would be greatly appreciated ...

                        Thanks in advance !!
