I have a button that I found on the internet and I would like to find out the exact hex value on the color.  Is there a way to do this in Visio or any other product?

Ill give you two solutions.

In Photoshop 5.5 open the image you want to find the color in. Open the color picker by double clicking the color swatch at the bottom of your tool pallet. You will see a gradient of color and on the right you will see measurements. At the bottom of this list you will see # and a series of numbers/letters in a field. Thats the hex value. Now by clicking on parts of your image you can view the value you just clicked on in hex.

The second way is Mac specific so if you don't have a Mac don't pay any attention to this. Apple bundles a utility called DigitalColor Meter with OS 9 that will give you the values of the color your mouse is over. RGB, CIE 1931, CIE 1976, CIE LAB, Tristimulus. If you look at the values given in the RGB fields you will see the hex broken down into its 3 parts.

I have a button that I want to put text on to in Photoshop 5.5, I tried using the Text tool, but it just keeps flashing the text and doesn't actually put any text on it......

You need to post that as a new question in the photoshop forum as this one has already been answered and graded.
