html colors on my page?

Postby susapra » Tue Nov 04, 2008 11:24 am

i'm trying to redo my adsense ads on my site (theoprahfanclub.com) so that they blend in with the page more. The ads are showing more yellow than they need to and point out more. Is there a site that'll tell me the colors used on my main page? Or can anyone tell me the html color code for the main background color? thanks..

I think that your main background color is white. If you want to know the code of a color, one of the easy ways is to take a screenshot (Print-Screen) and paste the screenshot into a graphics program and use the eyedropper tool.

I think you should use the standard blue for the ads, it's recognizable and you'll get more clicks rather than blending them in.

Border - #FFFFFF
Title - #006A8E
Background - #FFFFFF
Text - #000000
URL - #006A8E

Those are the colors of your current layout - and the hex codes for adsense

Try downloading and using this free ColorPix app. I use it myself. When you open it, it makes your mouse like a dropper - you mouseover any color on a web page, and it will display the hex code for that color. :)

Those are options too namidu - but the tool I suggested is completely free and accomplishes the same thing. ;)

Thanks for the tip on the colour picker Traci - I used it today.

I screwed my courage up and edited the stylesheet of my blog and being able to paste in the precise colour was very helpful.

Not sure how we got on a topic from November but since we're talking about colors ;)

Here's a few color related sites that I really like:

http://www.colourlovers.com
http://www.colorschemer.com/
http://www.pagetutor.com/common/bgcolors1536.png

that last one is a hex code chart

Happy color making! LOL
