need to sample colors

I am designing a web site. I have a long list of colors I like. I have liminted design background and need a good way to view all these quickly....what would be ideal is if i could copy and paste all the hex codes into an application that then showed me all the palettes so i could quicjly refresh on them

any suggestions? more than just photoshop, although directions how to do it there are going to be also helpful

Corel PhotoPaint has a good palette selector which covers the standard palette, Focoltone, Netscape and IE palettes, and (most of) the Pantone palettes.  You can also define your own palettes, which sounds like what you want.  The RGB values are reported in decimal so you'd need to hexify them yourself.

Regarding subtle color gradations, it's been my experience that on LCD monitors the definition is restricted in the 24-bit color space (which what you get in Windows most of the time) and one Pantone color looks pretty much like the next one or even two when displayed.

Why not just use the tools you are familiar with. Create a bunch of divs with float about 50 px square and apply the colours. It wouldn't take any longer to than learn how to do it in unfamiliar applications.

Or something like that, Im a beginner coder myself. I normally use dreamweaver to generate this type of code to be honest, I also use an external css to style divs rather than the inline CSS

PS (sorry I couldn't be more helpful with the code and some how you need to apply "float".
