In Photoshop Elements, does the colour picker tool give the numerical colour values (R,G,B, L,a,b) of the selected colour?
(I know it does in the full version of Photoshop - I've never used Elements, but a friend wants to use it for some colour comparison work of a range of photos, and would rather not have to buy the full version).

There's no need if they only want to use it for a specific purpose.
Just download and instal the thirty day free trial.
They won't, however, learn a fraction of what it can do in thirty days and they'll probably be disappointed to see it go.
Thanks, but the colour evaluation will be an on-going work project, so the software would have to be available permanently - and as the use will be limited to comparing colour values on ranges of photographs at this stage, all they need to know is whether or not the colour picker tool in Photoshop Elements gives the numerical values required (R,G,B, L,a,b)
I googled and Gimp supports lab colour. It's free so may be worth a download to see if it suits your friends requirements.
As far as I know Lab mode is not supported in elements.

In PSE 9: Open the image then click on the eyedropper and click on the colour you want to identify. The double overlapping square on the bottom of the tool palette (the one you use to switch black/white when using masks) will convert to that colour. Click on the square that shows your selected colour and the panel that opens will show the HSBRGB values and the colour code number.
Thanks Mike and Eddie.
