Links: Image editing & office

Of the several hundreds of free programs I have tried and the several thousands of websites I have visited, I give at least(!) 5 out of 5 points to those below. [1] This is the story about why I give the links at least(!) 5 out of 5 points (instead of being conventional and using a five grade scale with no leeway): To grade all sorts of phenomena is one of my great interests, to watch movies another one. When Skövde Film Festival started some years ago, I started grading every movie I saw. At first, I used the more established five grade scale, but sometimes I thought a movie deserved more than 5 points. Accordingly, I gave the movie in question 6 points. I didn't do so that often, but sometimes I did. Even less often, I gave a movie 7 points. That's how the five grade scale with at least seven grades was born. (I still haven't given more than 8 points on any occasion. To give 9 or 10 or even more points wouldn't be impossible, though, but I can't even begin to imagine what would justify that many points.)

Comments: What I, above all, appreciate about Visual Color Picker is that you can choose how much information you get. If you want more information, you can get that, and if you want less information you can hide practically all information you don't want. Furthermore, the program can generate code for CSS files etc. completely according to your wishes.
