Colour Blindness; Color Blindness; Colour / Color Vision Deficiency

 Whatever you want to call it, the inability to distinguish colours properly is a regular pain in the arse. Two Windows tools I use with this problem and which I both highly recommend are:

Colorpic

Ever tried using a color picker tool on a high resolution monitor? It's impossible. That's why this color picker has a magnifier attached. Grab palettes of up to 16 colors at once and use four advanced color mixers to select a spectrum of possibilities.

WhatColor

WhatColor identifies a color of the pixel on the screen of your PC. There are some similar tools to display RGB values to assist making HTML used in authoring WWW pages. WhatColor is different. It tells you not only RGB values, but also the name of the color of the point.

Let me know in the comments if you found these tools useful, or if you recommend any others.

AI Generated faces (and cats)

 

Do you need an AI generated face for your project? The above was created simply by going to This Person Does Not Exist. The web page will automatically generate you a random face via Artificial Intelligence. Just refresh the page for any further faces. Best of all it's FREE. And, what's more, if you need a Cat, you can get one of those too, at thiscatdoesnotexist.com


The only slight niggle I had when I downloaded the images was that they were in a .jfif format, which was soon sorted by using the website Convertio — File Converter, a FREE online file conversion utility.
