What it is...

ColorNamePicker is a plug-in for the colorpicker. The colorpicker can be accessed from a number of applications and is used for selecting colors. ColorNamePicker can be used to select a color based on RGB values, a Hex value or a colorname. It will analyze the selected color and return the name of the closest matching color. The matching color is also shown and its corresponding Hex value is given. This plug-in should be especially helpful for colorblind people.


ColorNamePicker is freeware. You can copy and distribute it in unmodified form. Donations are appreciated!
