Anyone else want a way to get the hex code from a color in a model?
I often use sketchup along with adobe or other design programs, and would like to be able to get the hex code of a color that I pick from the color wheel or sliders in sketchup so that I can match them in whichever other program I’m using. Currently I take a screenshot of the color and enter it into an online hex code finder. Works, but it’s a pain.
Apologies if this exists. If so, I couldn’t figure it out.
On Mac, in the Colors palette you can choose the sliders, and RGB, then use the eyedropper in the lower left of the palette to pick up any screen color. In this example you can see that Heather’s face is #FFB990, which you can copy and paste into Photoshop.
Interesting. Digital Color Meter. I see it’s on my Sierra (10.12.6) machine, so I’m not sure how long it’s been around. At least it acknowledges that color numbers are relative to a color space and gives you a choice. Since SketchUp isn’t a color managed app like Adobe ones, I’ve always wondered what the effective color space is. sRGB? My monitor RGB?
for Windows and Linux - IrfanView is a lightweight and excellent tool for basic image manipulations on a single layer (for more in-depth edits - GIMP) and by setting the colors to 256 (or 16) on a given image, you can export the palette or simple edit to get the details values. 24-bit color has no specific “palette”. it’s free and has a number of specific plugins as well as some compatibility with PS plugins.
