To Copy Colors From Your Website:

If you use a windows operating system like XP or Vista, There are many programs you can use to identify these colors. Below are several free color picker programs that you could download. There are also paid programs out there if you would like enhanced security and support.

At the end of this page are instructions on how to put these colors into your Mimi theme.
Now, Let’s Walk Through An Example:
- In our example, we’re going to use the Annystudio Just Color Picker. So first you need to download the program. Follow the link to the Annystudio download page, and click on the link for the program. Unless your computer is really old, this should be http://annystudio.com/jcpicker.exe
- Open the program, and you’ll see a box like the ones below. Go to your website and put your mouse over the color your want the name of, and press Alt+x
- On the right hand side of the program, You’ll see the color along with it’s 6 digit name. This light blue color’s name is : #B1C7FF

Adding Hex Codes to your Mad Mimi Theme:
- Go to your Mimi account, and click on the “Edit” link next to one of your promotions in the promotions tab. Click on the themes tab, and then select create theme. Enter the name you’d like your theme to have and press create new:
- Click on the text type or color area you want to change. For this example, I clicked on “Heading”. Go back to your color picker program, and copy the 6-digit hex code of the color you want. Click on the 6 digit number shown in the image below, and paste the new number in. Then click ok.
- Ta Da! The headings are now pink. For the rest of the colors you recorded, rinse and repeat.
Don’t forget to hit “Okay I’m Done” when you’re finished!
Remember, you can select this new theme for future promotions, since it will be stored in your themes tab on the right.
