This is for automation by screen capture
I have a program that picks out colors from a screen capture of an application. Once I found the colors of interest, I tried comparing them against a previous capture of the image.
They didn’t match!
Did you know that the color grabbed can change depending on the monitor’s color? I had one monitor configured for 16 bit color and the other monitor configured for 32 bit color.
Turns out that taking a screenshot of a game screen on both monitors yielded bitmaps with slightly different colors.
