OS X Crayon Color Hex Table

I've been doing dozens of wireframes recently using OmniGraffle.
Which, I might add, is very useful for this.
To help me along, I've been using some stencils:

  • jQmobile
  • iPhone 5 UI
  • Mobile - iPhone
  • Best Practice UX Forms Stencil v2.0
  • Ultimate iPhone

All pretty cool.

But when I came to actually creating some of the layouts to HTML and specifically CSS, I found getting the colors from the Color Picker crayons to hex values was irritating. I did try ColorPicker from RubiCode.com, but in the end I just built a table.

For my reference and for anyone else who needs a visual representation of those crayons I put this together:

    here is a two-dimensional array of 42 of those colors. They are "sorted" by hand (so not very sorted).
