  • Color

    Sometimes I come across a color in a magazine, poster, wall, paint, etc that I like. To use it or know what it is I either take a picture or scan it. Is there an inexpensive device that can take a visual sample of the color and provide the color code?

          Getting Pixel Color In VB
          by dell8092
          Could someone please tell me how to get the individual pixel color of a document in Photoshop using VB? I have tried it multiple ways and the only way I can truly get it is through the histogram. However, that is extremely slow!

          Any help would be appreciated!

          Thanks in...
