What is Color Picker?
The 'Color Picker' is an Edge add-on that enables you to develop your personalized 4-color palette for web designs, and swiftly pick colors from any webpage through the eyedropper function. Further, it allows users to create visually pleasing, evenly spaced color scales for charts or maps. The blending feature permits mixing two colors using different modes. Along with convenient clipboard copying and text file saving buttons, the add-on provides multiple format color codes, and maintains color selection history.

Summary

Create your own personalized 4-color palette that you can use for your web pages, pick colors from a web page with the eyedropper, create color scales for chart, and map visualizations, experiment by blending colors.

Color Picker: Use the color picker by clicking and dragging the markers around the palette. The color selections are shown together with their Hex code values in the boxes below the palette. The color picker will also display the colors to different formats (i.e., HEX, RGB, HSV, HSL, CMYK).

Eyedropper: Use the Eyedropper by right-clicking on the page and selecting "Pick a color on the page". You can also use the Eyedropper button on the Eyedropper tab of the extension's popup. Note that colors are picked from a snapshot of the viewable area of the page. Make sure you scroll to the area of the page that you want to select colors from before starting the eyedropper. Also note that some pages (e.g., file://) have security that prevent eyedropper from working. The Color Picker tracks a history of the colors you've selected with the eyedropper. You can see the history on the Color Picker's Eyedropper tab. On hi-dpi (high resolution) screens the eyedropper snapshot may appear blurry.

Color Scale: Use the color scale to create a set of visually pleasing colors that are evenly spaced. If you are creating any type of chart or map that relies on colors to visually distinguish elements (or data values) in your chart or map you'll find this very hard to do manually and the results will likely be not ideal - often leaving the viewer to guess the intent of the color. This tool will produce a pleasing color scale from the start and end colors you select. Select from different color modes to get your favorite colors.

Could not get most functionality to work on my version of Microsoft Edge - had to use the sliders to try to match, and that ended up giving false outcomes from differing monitor performances.

Nice tool to get a color and its different formats. This tool would be really useful if it would allow me to capture a color from the page.
