If you are a web designer then you know the necessity of capturing the color of some pixels from the images being used in a web project so that you can use the color code in the cascading style sheets (CSS). Without knowing the actual hex code or the RGB value of the colors, it becomes a matter of hit and miss. For capturing the color from any area on your screen, you can use a freeware tool called Just Color Picker.
