Post Reply in ColorPic

Post Reply To "Help in naming colors"

I've noticed there's been no reply so far.    I did note that if your selected color is a websafe color, the name will appear.    But if it is even slightly different than a websafe color, no name appears.

The feature I'm suggesting is to display the *nearest* named color, or colors.

If I use ColorPic on this forum page, the color names don't appear in most cases.   For example, if I select the words to the left that are in blue, no color name appears.  

If I enter the Hex value for the text color used to the left on encycolorpedia, I get this page:


All kinds of data is available, but what interests me are the "Related Names Colors" section.

Even a simplified version of this based on the color names listed in Wikipedia would be great.    Examples of blue shades are listed here:


If you use only a page like this, you have to manually search for the nearest named color, which in this case is Denim Blue.
