I was talking with a client recently, who we’re building a website for, who commented (jokingly) that she’d love to use the same colour orange on her website as her favourite top. So, within 30 seconds I’d clicked on my colorzilla colour picker icon (a Chrome Extension), hovered over the orange top in her picture, and had the exact colour code. I then gave that to my designer to use as a contrast colour on the website! How cool is that.
