Aura Beta 3 by AngelWZR Aura Beta 3 by AngelWZR
Aura is application that calculates average color of desktop background image or active window icon and sets it as Aero Glass color. It works like color hot-track in Windows 7 taskbar. Aura written in C# using WPF and Visual Studio 2010.

It's like a new feature of Windows 8 - Aero Auto-Colorization

I just wanted to mention that this allows Rainmeter in Windows 7 to use the colorizationcolor registry value just as it does in Windows 8. (i.e. You can change the color of your meters based on average color of the desktop wallpaper.)

Really awesome utility. THANK YOU.

I LOVE THIS!!
BUT it's just missing one feature:
At the moment we can choose between "Get color from wallpaper" and "Get color from active window icon". I currently have "Get color from active window icon" enabled but when all active windows are closed the color changes to black. I would like an option so that if all windows are closed it switches to "Get color from wallpaper" and switches back to "Get color from active window icon" when I open a window.

Still, great work. Hope you add my feature request if you do i'ld watch you as well as add you to favourites.

Although it sounds like a cool idea, I'd rather have a single selected color. What would be even better is if there was a tool to allow you to select from a larger collection of colors (including ability to change color number)... :P
