I’m redesigning a PowerPoint 2010 presentation, and wanted to match the colors to the ones on my book cover. I used free software to do it. Microsoft Paint’s Color Picker tool makes it easy to color match.
The colors displayed on your computer are designated as RGB. That’s short for the first letters in the colors red, green, and blue that are combined in various percentages to produce other colors. Here’s how I used Paint’s Color Picker and then used it in PowerPoint by creating a custom color.
How to Find the Hex (HTML) Equivalent for WordPress (PC user)
As illustrated in the above video, I used the Color Picker tool in Microsoft Paint to get the Hue, Sat, Lum, Red, Green, Blue. Then I went to http://www.ColorPicker.com and used those numbers I got from Microsoft Paint to get the #Hex code. Users who’ve invested in Adobe Illustrator probably know to use its Eye Dropper tool to find the numbers. It gives you the RGB, CMYK, HEX, and other codes.
Another method is using the Windows Calculator:
Open the Windows Calculator (in Windows 8, on the Start Tile screen, type Paint, and press Enter when it’s selected).
Press Alt+3 to get to Programming mode on the calculator.
With Dec selected, type in the Red, Green, and Blue numbers.
Productivity in the workplace is expected to take a dip during the weeks of the Winter Olympics, but some employees will handle it better than others.
Sporting News recently reported that heavy sports enthusiasts spend on average over 31 hours a week following sports. These same people will probably completely shut down the next few weeks to follow the Olympics. Others will do what needs to be done…it all depends on the type of worker they normally are.
Slackers will use this as an excuse to do less work. If they’re wasting time instead of working now, they’ll just do more of it these few weeks.
On the other hand, conscientious employees will continue to meet goals, beat deadlines, and service the customer.
If you’re the boss and are going to require less of them during this craze, you should have required more from them before it heated up.
