Custom HEX Color Picker – 1520 HEX colours

Using a couple of hex colour list from the web. I made a .clr  Colour Picker Palette file. Using NSColorlist

This can be placed in you users colours folder:

~/Library/Colors/

Once done.

Newly launched Applications will pick up the new palette which holds 1520 HEX colours.

I have marked some of the names with Web Safe. These should match what is considered web safe by those that know.
