    Nice freeware for extracting color palette from image (offline)

    Hi all.
    At present AR doesn't have an automatic function to extract a color palette from an image or photo. I know that there are several online tools that perform the task, but if someone likes, as me, to also have an offline program, I found a very nice simple freeware that works well.
    The program is called "Pictures to color" and you can download it from:
    http://www.wenovo.com/freeware/downl...s-to-color.php

    I am not affiliated with the authors, but I find the program very simple and effective:

    Not so much for Art Rage, but for Photoshop, etc, "Color Cop is a multi-purpose color picker for web designers and programmers. It identifies and represents colors in various hex color code formats. Simply drag the eyedropper control to any location on the screen and release. The hex color code for the selected color will be automatically copied to the clipboard."

    See: http://colorcop.net/

    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    If you have windows you can use the "snipit" tool to do a capture of the screen and save as .jpg
