    Hi..
    I was just checking for a color picker, as I need that a lot of times in a day.

    Can anyone say, how to get the hex value in the default Color Picker application ?

    Go to Applications --> Utilities. Launch DigitalColor Meter. Toggle to RGB as Hex Color.

    6 values?

    Anyway: hit shift-cmd-C when you're hovering over the colour you want to copy it:

    That copies the value with this format (including the "-s): "#F2F2F2"

    If you've chosen RGB As Hex Value, 8-bit, that is...

    Ah,, I see..
    I needed that exactly.

    And lets say, I have the color codes and I want to try what colour is that.
    Can we do this here ?
