ColorCop allows you to magnify any part of your screen and pick a color from it using the eye dropper tool. The magnifier supports 1 to 16x zoom, and the eye dropper tool can pick an average color from a 3x3 or 5x5 area instead of sampling only a single pixel. The picked color can be easily exported to various formats required by HTML, Delphi, PowerBuilder, Visual Basic or Visual C++ etc.

Note: versions newer than v5.3 are no longer natively portable (see "What's new?" button above), because they leave traces in the system; as the license doesn't forbid redistribution, TPFC is making the natively portable v5.3 available for download.

Runs on:Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Application folder
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the no-install ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch ColorCop.exe.

It also will retrieve the "powerbuilder" formatted colour codes. I needed those values for manually editing the styles.xml settings for TreeDBnotes.
