If you work with Web pages or if you do design work with image colors on a regular basis, you might find the DigitalColor Meter a handy little utility. What it does, is allows you to capture the exact color value of any pixel on your screen. Move your cursor over the image until the color value you want is displayed. Then press the ⌘ + L keystroke combination to lock the color values on your screen.
You can choose to have the color value sampled in five different ways: * Native Values * sRGB * Generic RGB * Adobe RGB * Lab*
