Color Choice in Adobe Photoshop Elements 9

I am new to using Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 and am feeling my way along. I have started to fill in the bottom of a picture with a green color that  will keep rising as we get more money in for our project. The problem is i didn't record the color skeem and now i can not figure out how to get Elements to tell me what color i was using. As the color rises i want it to be the same one. I am using a different color for the top part but i have recorded those numbers and its Name given by Elements.  campaign

The tool that bill mentions is very nice, and can come in handy in a number of ways, however colors can sometimes change from browser to browser, so the color that you sample MIGHT not be exactly the same as in your original.

You should learn to use the eyedropper tool. This handy little tool lets you sample a color and load it automatically into your pallet.

I hope that you are either putting the green paint on its own layer, or are saving a different version each time you update. It would be terrible to need to undo the green paint if it's all on one layer and the file has been closed.

I use Microsoft Web Expressions and it has an option to give the hex value from any window.  You could try Color Spy from http://silverage-software.software.informer.com/ if you didnt want to buy something, its freeware.

D Brugge: actually the visible color might change from browser to browser, or monitor to monitor.  But the actual hex code will stay the same.

Actually the green color was 50EF1F according to eyedropper which i would think would be 100% dead on. As is often the case there was a simple answer that i simply could not find on my own. I am using the chalkboard tool on top and because of the way it works the eye dropper tool and would be the only way to pick up the color unaffected by the intentional white space left by the tool. Thanks
