Subject: Color pickers online?
So, I'm a design cretin, but occasionally I still need to go make something a color.
I can phrase english descriptions of what I'd like, "A little darker than this", and even toy with Lingua Artista "Somewhat more saturated than this blue?"...
But I have no idea how to go about turning those notions into #CED12f and its friends. For years I just used 'cornflowerblue' and got on with business.
Now, I know most of you with design props have Adobe Whatever on your desktop and can just open the picker from that. It's a tool you're accustomed to and it's probably a very effective one. Are there web-set
versions of it that are any good? I'm going to go try GIMP, but I
quail it its complexity.
