Graphic Utilities

The Mac OS X operating system comes with a few utilities for working with and creating graphics files, but, unfortunately, nothing that can enable you to create a work of art from scratch. If that's the type of application you're looking for, check out Chapter 8. The four included applications (DigitalColor Meter, Grab, Image Capture, and Preview) can help you identify onscreen colors, take screenshots, download digital photos, and view and manipulate graphics.

DigitalColor Meter

The DigitalColor Meter (Path: /Applications/Utilities/DigitalColor Meter) is a small application that measures and reports the color of an onscreen pixel, or the average color of a group of pixels. Graphic artists will find this useful for color matching, and Web designers can use it to quickly sample an onscreen color for use in a Web page.
