Hello experts,
I am trying to create an image in GIMP using the same color on my web page. The color is in HTML format like #FFFFE0. This seems like a very simple thing to do but I can't find how to do this in GIMP. Can anyone help?
Thanks.

If you look at the bottom of the toolbox and you switch to the FG/BG color tab, then right under the button that gives you the eye dropper which lets you pick a color from anywhere in GIMP there is a input box, you put color numbers there.
