You can determine a color in a tex document (or, for that matter, a pdf or any kind of document) more generally, and use it in your own document by doing the following:

  • Have a "color picker"
  • Use it to get the html code (for instance, #A30000),
  • load xcolor in your preamble,
  • define your color using \definecolor{myColor}{HTML}{A30000}, cf. this post.

    Additional note: the color picker could event be a browser add-on, for example.
