tools for web design

Hi experts,

I was wondering if anyone know a tool or website for the following:

Say I have a list of colors in a text file or notepad that looks like this.
This is just a sample list, my actual list has like a hundred hex colors on it:


So now I want to just copy this color list from notepad and then paste it into to a tool that will create a color palette showing what these colors look like?

Anyone how how I can submit my list to a tool to view all the colors on my list?

I found this tool but this tool only lets you do one color at a time.

I'm looking for something like this but that will let me input a bunch of colors at a time.


does anyone know if there is a functionality in Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate, DreamWeaver CS6 or Firefox Firebug that will do this?
Something like this?

a quick trick to get your hex lines in URL format would be to use a command like replace('#',")(")

We have used this tool in the past. It works well.

The editor I use, HTML-Kit, has a color picker built-in.  I don't have to use an external color table.

I think I must have misunderstood your question, I was under the impression you wanted to see the colour representation for your "like a hundred hex colors"

If not then some of the tools above will be much better for choosing themes of colours or seeing a single hex represented as a colour.

The adobe tool above is awesome I need to favourite that one..
Place this classic ASP code in the same directory as your text file (named.colors.txt).
Run webpage on your webserver and see results.
Each line in web page will be a block of color representing the corresponding line on your text file and will also show you the color code value:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns="" >
        <title>Color Display Page</title>
            'on error resume next 

            'Create a server object
            set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
            ' Target the text file to be opened
            set act = fso.OpenTextFile(Server.MapPath("colors.txt"))
            ' Read the value of the text document
            Do Until act.AtEndOfStream 
                lineData = act.ReadLine
                Response.Write "<font style='color:" & lineData & ";background-color:" & lineData & ";'>COLOR</font>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;" & lineData & "<br />"
            ' Close the file
