CarbonCommader is long deprecated. For its time it had all the features I needed - quick colorpicking. But the time had come for a complete overhaul. SimpleColorPicker


Features

  • Control the program with hotkeys
    [F8] to save color.

  • Copy the last picked RGB value with a click of a button.

Snippet for the colorpicking:

Bitmap BMP = new Bitmap(1, 1);
            Graphics GFX = Graphics.FromImage(BMP);
            GFX.CopyFromScreen(new Point(MousePosition.X, MousePosition.Y), new Point(0, 0), BMP.Size);
            Color Pixel = BMP.GetPixel(0, 0);

SpriteSaver is used by my wife to erase a specific color of a bigger picture to use them in her dioramas.


Features

  • Control the program with hotkeys
    F6 pick color.
    F7 set color.
    F9 delete color.
    F10 save new image .
  • Drag the red square around to get the rough location into to preview windows.
  • Use the slider left and below the preview windows to change the size.
  • Use your mousecursor to select a specific color you want to erase

The program was written in VB.NET

Move the rectangle with your mouse:

#Region "MoveRectangle"
    Private Sub pb_Source_MouseDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles pb_Source.MouseDown
        If e.Button = Windows.Forms.MouseButtons.Left AndAlso myRectangle.Contains(e.Location) Then
            x = myRectangle.X - e.X
            y = myRectangle.Y - e.Y
        End If
    End Sub

    Private Sub pb_Source_MouseMove(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles pb_Source.MouseMove
        If e.Button = Windows.Forms.MouseButtons.Left AndAlso myRectangle.Contains(e.Location) Then

Remove the specified color from the image:

        Dim x As Integer
        Dim y As Integer
        Dim red As Byte
        Dim green As Byte
        Dim blue As Byte

        Dim img As Bitmap = New Bitmap(pb_Preview.Image)

        For x = 0 To img.Width - 1
            For y = 0 To img.Height - 1
                red = img.GetPixel(x, y).R
                green = img.GetPixel(x, y).G
                blue = img.GetPixel(x, y).B

                If red = CDbl(tb_red.Text) AndAlso green = CDbl(tb_green.Text) AndAlso blue = CDbl(tb_blue.Text) Then
                    img.SetPixel(x, y, Color.Transparent)
                End If
            Next
