Use BeFunky's Color Management tools to pick your favorite colors and save them to your library for a customized color palette.

Selecting a Color
The Color Picker can be accessed and managed anywhere you have the option to adjust the color of a design element. Try it out by customizing a graphic!
Colors can be selected and added by inputting the hex codes, using the eyedropper, or selecting a color from either the color spectrum or color grid.
Hex codes are a hexadecimal format for identifying RBG colors. Each color will have its own unique hex code. For example, the hex code for white is #FFFFFF.
To input your hex code, click the text field and type your code in, and select return.
Head on over to this article for in-depth information regarding hex codes. If you find yourself needing more details about precise color and saturation values or want to see some charts of colors that look great together, HTML Color Codes has the tools you need to get it just-right.
The eyedropper tool can be used to hover over your image to select a specific color from an existing image.
Click on the eyedropper icon to select this tool. A circular target with a square in the center will appear. Hover your mouse over your image until your desired color appears in the square box and then click to select. Once you have clicked the mouse to select the color, the hex code will be displayed.
The color spectrum can also be used to select your color. Move the slider along the spectrum to select your color of choice. Click to select your color.
To view the color grid layout, click the 'switch view' icon to view additional color options as a grid. Click on your desired color swatch to select your color.
The six last colors that were used will be displayed in the recent colors palette.
Select the 'No Color' icon to remove the color from the selected design element.
The library is where you have the option to add your desired colors to create your own customizable color palette!
