    I have some code here and I would like to find out what color it is talking about, Is there a program or website that can convert these for me? Thanks!

    $bgcolor1 = "#EDEFF2";
    $bgcolor2 = "#DDE2EC";
    $bgcolor3 = "#EDEFF2";
    $bgcolor4 = "#DDE2EC";

    Its really quite simple. Each color is made up of 3 separate groups of 2 colors. For #EDEFF2: ED=Red, EF=green, F2=blue

    Convert each of these seperate values into decimal (using calculator): ED=237, EF=239, F2=242

    Plug these numbers into paintbrush's Red, Green, and Blue fields in the custom colors screen. Paintshop Pro lets you enter the full HEX string into the "HTML color" field, which is quite a bit easier.

    Photoshop also allows you to enter the hex code

    Or, just create a html file:
    Code:
    <font color="#EDEFF2">#EDEFF2</font><BR>
    <font color="#DDE2EC">#DDE2EC</font><BR>
    <font color="#EDEFF2">#EDEFF2</font><BR>
    <font color="DDE2EC">DDE2EC</font><BR>

    I prefer the last method, the HTML trick.
