Platform: Windows

May, 2010

DM-Pixie was built especially for webmasters and designers. Just point to a color and DM-Pixie will tell you the hex, RGB, HTML, CMYK and HSB values of the color. These values can be used to reproduce the selected color in your other programs. DM-Pixie will also show the current coordinates of your mouse pointer.

This is the definitely tool for you to work with colors.
