    Hey copespeak - many thanks for that link too. Haven't had a chance to try either of them yet, but I'm sure they will both prove useful whichever one I end up preferring.

    Antlab - many thanks for the kind words, but there is no need to be honoured. I'm just a keen ArtRage user like most folk here and thankful for this handy addition to the arsenal.

    Yes, or you can simply use the Print Screen key to copy the whole screen in the clipboard, then paste in AR or another graphic program and save in your preferred format (Alt+Print Screen saves only the active window).

    I only recently discovered Snipping Tool (Start>Accessories>Snipping Tool). It's wonderful and I use it everywhere... for receipts, graphics and so much more.

    Forget what I have just said. I have found an excellent colour picker in iTunes Store. The free version only works for five try's but I like it so much I have purchased the pro version.https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pale...293249989?mt=8
    The program has a feature to backup to camera role ready to import as reference.

    Thank you Antlab and Saphire for heads up!
    Both applications are very useful tools.

    Yes it is, but not to worry:

    Go here and discover the hidden depths of the Mac built in colour picker! :-)

    Thank you Brett, I will check that program out once I am back on the iMac.
    The one I bought for the iPad works great except it only does 25 colours but if I take just a small portion of the picture with a crop and then use the picker, I end up with a great colour selection.

    Thanks Brett, I had forgotten the mac color picker.

    Thanks Antlab also. I couldn't get the app to work with Windows 8 but it looks cool.
