    How about a color picker from some graphics programme and using the RGB values ;-) – user31729 Oct 8 '14 at 18:54
  • I should stress again the fact, that this image has a wide range of green shades....there is not just one single green shade, so the question itself is 'unclear'... – user31729 Oct 8 '14 at 19:24

    Have you looked at the enormous number of predefined colours supported by the xcolor package already? There are a very wide range of greens, along with every other conceivable hue, really. (I guess less if you want metallic-looking colours but that's more specialised.) – cfr Oct 8 '14 at 20:57

  • hi @Hupfer, how can I accept it? I already click the useful button, what else I can do? – Ginger Oct 11 '14 at 20:29

Using a color picker tool from a graphics programme it is possible to get the RGB (or whatever values) and define the color accordingly.

I just clicked at a brighter green region to get following definition:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage{blindtext}%

\definecolor{mynicegreen}{RGB}{102,252,102}

\begin{document}
\colorbox{mynicegreen}{\parbox{0.5\textwidth}{\blindtext}}
\end{document}

enter image description here

This depends of course on the specific position -- there is huge range of color shades of course.

  • what about if i would like to use \green comment for the new color? – Ginger Oct 8 '14 at 19:03
  • @Ginger: What do you mean by \green comment? – user31729 Oct 8 '14 at 19:08

    @Ginger TeX is a macro language, you are free to define a macro \green as shorthand for \color{mynicegreen} or \textcolor{mynicegreen}. – Heiko Oberdiek Oct 8 '14 at 19:09

    @Ginger are you using an Acrobat Reader version older than Acrobat Reader X? Versions such as 9 and previous have issues with some colors. – Old Nick Oct 8 '14 at 19:20

    @ginger If you want green to be your definintion of green, just define \definecolor{green}{RGB}{102,252,102} – Sveinung Oct 9 '14 at 9:28
