How to pic a color for pasting it in HTML code

Post by Talker » Wed Apr 06, 2016 9:38 am

Hi!

Is there an easy way to pic a color and copy it to the Clipboard for pasting it in HTML code? Just like the "Copy Color Hex Code" in Photoshop.

In XnView I've found "View / Display Color Information" but I don't know how to copy an HTML color code to the Clipboard.

Yes :-)
  1. Option for Hex (#ffffff) vs. RGB (rgb(255,255,255)) format
  2. Preview in tooltip

Left and right mouse buttons (without modifier key) are already used for Make selection or Move picture in XnView (ToolsOptions...Keyboard/MouseMouse).
Disabling Make selection and Move picture when Display Colour Information is active would cause problems with the following INI tweak, I guess:
XnView Wiki (UI-less Settings → [url=http://www.xnview.com/wiki/index.php/UI-less_Settings#View]View[/url] → ColorInfo) wrote:Changes the behavior of the color information tool.
  • 0 Show only for the currently viewed image.
    1 Show also for the previous¦next file to view.
    2 Show between sessions.
Value: Integer, default value is 0
Many image editors allow the user to constrain the selection ratio to 1:1 (square/circle vs. rectangle/ellipse) with Shift+LMB. In Phototshop, Shift+Alt+LMB centers the selection around the point where you first clicked (in addition to constraining the selection to a square or circle). Ctrl+LMB and Alt+LMB are often used for adding or subtracting to a selection.
I'm fully aware that XnView isn't meant to be an editor, but in case Pierre decides to expand the cropping functionality, these modifier keys should still be available, IMO.

So, how about Ctrl+RMB?
