No more, Background Color Aid is a free color picker software program and has many valuable features. It's what I would like to call, a handy web tool to have in you webmaster's toolbox!
It is really easy to use and find the perfect color you are looking for. Just move your mouse over the colors you would like to see. When you find a color you like, click the Keep button. This will save your color so that you can continue picking even more complimentary colors.
You can see the current color and last saved color in order to compare them. You can also view the last 18 colors you have kept. They are all stored in the 'Color History' section.
Any time you click on a color its RGB, Decimal, HTML and VB color codes will show up in the Color Outputs section of Background Color Aid. You can also simply cut and paste from these windows directly into other apps.
Save colors to the 'Windows Palette' then they can be selected from other Windows programs. In order to do this simply select the color you want, click 'Presets'. Next just pick one of the available color boxes, then click Add.
You can also select only web safe colors by selecting 'Safe Palette'. It is located in the drop down box in the presets menu. All of the 216 colors displayed can be used safely in any internet browser.
