    Ok Big problem...in the classic client.......huge infact!!!!.... the last few lots of gifts have been silly shaded items that make your ''eyes bleed trying to tell the colour shades''...be it the easter gooses .. be it the posiatteas.. be it this years bloody silly candles and boxes....

    I hate the EC... seems those using it can get a add on called pinco to paint check/ colour check???

    WELL i use CC.. like 75% of the populous.... i want to colour check/paint check too

    so make it bloody happen.............

    Most people just use paint or photoshop and ID colors that way. photoshop makes it super easy, but paint isn't too bad, either. I remember doing it with the tribal masks in paint way back when lol.

    Yeah its a feature of Pinco UI mate. You can just click and item and it tells you the hue ID and if there is any name attached to it etc.

    VERY handy for working out the colours of gifts etc. Venus fly trap deeds, anny muffins etc. etc.

    I have both clients installed as they both have pros and cons. This is NOT built into the standard EC though. Its just an addition Pinco has added.

    I posted instructions on how to use Gimp to get colours from the CC here.

    You basically just need something with an eyedropper tool to select the colour on your screen and one which has the relevant numbers so you can identify the different colours.

    The devs didn't implement it for the EC. Pinco did it. So why should they do it for the CC? Especially since it would be more complicated in the CC since you would have to do it natively (in the EC you have a nice API with LUA).
    So the quick answer is: yes, you'll have to swap clients. Either temporary or permanently. Up to you...

    He doesn't implement any new features for UOA..just makes sure it connects..I forget where but there is post of him saying why..he said that the original UOA was nothing like what you see now and had to rove a lot of features so it could be an approved third party feature, and there was way too many hoops to jump through so he won't be updating..at least to the best of my knowledge

    hm well way back when you would focus on the same pixel location and grab that color information. I can't post a screenie right now you would compare that color to other gift boxes to discern them. GIMP is a good, free, program, though!
