Not always entirely accurate but still fun to play with - this website (link via maybe maven)will identify key colors in a photo (jpg url) and give you a web color palette. Helpful for designing!

Thanks for this link, very cool! Also, this post kind of shocked me, because I've had that exact photo as my desktop for a couple weeks.

Thank you for posting this great reference tool, I will use this to match my wraps with seasonal flower colors.
FYI: I knew this was great but didn't know how to apply this info, so I emailed Steve from DeGraeve and he explained how to use the color formula in Quark, Illustrator and photoshop:
"In the color selector/palette use the RGB, hex (web) mode. Then use the first 2 characters for red, the middle 2 characters for green and the last to characters for blue. I am working on a new project that will have all the different versions of the colors listed." Thanks Steve.
Also here's a TIP for getting the jpegs you want to match from a website. On a Mac: Select Page source from the view menu. Find the file with the jpeg, copy and paste into the window in the color generator.
