    Pick a colour, any colour

    colorpickr.jpgFirst, sorry for lack of posts around here – mad busy with 3 big projects to get out the door before we head to Ireland and Italy in mid-April.

    That said, here’s a great toy I stumbled across recently. Jim Bumgardner’s Experimental Color Pickr does exactly what it says on the tin.

    Choose a colour, adjust its brightness and the picker will show you images from the Flickr Color Fields group (worth a look in itself) that exactly match the colour you’ve chosen.

    It doesn’t sound like much, but in practice it’s very cool. It might also be useful for designers looking to find images that match a particular color (but as you have to drag the picker around, and can’t enter a RGB value, you might struggle to get exactly the right shade).
