Hi,
  ** I am looking for a (preferably free) image viewer, in which I can open an image and have this facility:
zoom into the image and when I am able to see individual pixels, view the color values of the pixel, on pointing the mouse.
  ** I have IrfanView and Gimp on my windows, but they dont seem to have such an option. I think ImageMagick has it but I cant zoom the whole image. (the zoomed window is separate and accomodates a small portion of the image).
  ** I tried some softwares that show you pixel colors on the desktop, but dont work when pointer is inside an image viewers window.

Thanks & Regards,
Janak

Understanding Web Applications

GetColor does the job!

Although, I would appreciate if someone can recommend an image viewer with this capability integrated, so I dont have to "drag" additional pointer.

I think Gimp should have a plugin for this. Anyone has any ideas?
