    Hello everybody! New Mac user here. I'm a webdesigner and would like to have a real color picker that picks... REAL colors. I've got the "Hex Color picker" application ( which integrates with the built-in color picker in my iMac but it doesn't find real colors when I pick up color from webpages.

    EX: Real color: #e8effe
    When I pick it up from my page, the Hex Color Picker tells me this is the color: #e2eafe which is not.

    Little annoying when you're a webdesigner. It's somewhat important to get the real colors.

    Any tools someone please? Thanks in advance.

    Interesting. I never noticed that before — have you asked the developer about it? I've found him to be responsive in the past.

    I tried creating a color in Photoshop, then picking it with Hex Color Picker, RCWeb and Developer Picker — and got the same result with all three. But it wasn't what Photoshop declared the color to be. Even Apple's built-in sliders (RGB, etc) differ from Photoshop.
