About Color picker tool


A color picker tool is a computer program or hardware device that allows a user to select a color from a displayed palette. Some color pickers allow the user to input RGB or other color values, and some allow the user to select colors by name.


The color picker tool makes it easy to create, adjust, and experiment with custom colors for the web. It also makes it easy to convert between various color formats supported by CSS, including HEXA colors, RGB (Red/Green/Blue), and HSL (Hue/Saturation/Lightness).


Control over the alpha channel is also supported on RGB (rgba) and HSL (hsla) formats.  


As you adjust the parameters that define the color, it gets displayed in all three standard Web CSS formats. In addition, based on the currently-selected color, a palette for HSL and HSV, as well as alpha, is generated.


The "eyedropper" style color picker box can be toggled between HSL or HSV format. You can also test colors and how they overlap one another by dragging them into the box at the bottom of the tool and moving them over one another.


Adjust their relative Z index values to move them forward and behind one another.  This tool will help you identify the perfect CSS colors to apply to your HTML.


How to use the color picker tool?

The color picker tool is easy to use. First, select the color that you want to use from the displayed palette. Second, input the RGB or other color values into the color picker. Finally, select the color that you want to use.
