Know The Color Code Of Any Color Anywhere On Your Screen

While working with http://technize.com I had one problem .. adjusting all the colors. I had to copy the screen shot of the whole blog into Adobe Photoshop and then pick the color code from there and then put it in the stylesheet. Then I found out two softwares which could do this for me. They can pick the color of any place on the screen.

You can organize in categories and accessing it is very easy as it resides faded on the top of the screen like the task bar at the bottom. When we hover our mouse on it, it comes out.
