Jenn and I recently got a comment from one our readers asking how to grab the RGB values of a color you like anywhere on your screen using Photoshop. Well, no problem! We pointed her to our post at Scrappers Work under the date of ……
Hmmm. There is no post with that subject!
But Jenn and I KNOW we wrote that; it’s one of our most popular Quick Tips. So where was it?
At Jenn’s old designers blog – Scrapkitty Design (www.scrapkittydesign.com/blog).
WOW! We had forgotten all of the great tips there! So we will be bringing back the great ones here at Scrappers Workshop.
Here’s the first one – How to Grab a Color Anywhere on Your Screen using Photoshop:
See a color on your screen that you just love and want to use it in a layout? Use Photoshop or Elements to grab it.
With Photoshop or Elements open, create a new document of any size – I usually make a small little box of 1? x 1?.
Resize your Photoshop or Elements window by clicking on the Restore Down button on the upper right of the window:
Drag your window around until you see the color you want to grab (You can drag the edges of the window to make it smaller or bigger).
In Photoshop or Elements, hit the “I” key to select the Eyedropper tool.
Click inside your blank document and hold. Now drag the mouse around the screen – any color that is below the mouse will automatically be filled as your foreground color! Drag the mouse over the color you want – now you’ve got your color!
Jenn and I have a lot of exciting posts coming in the next few weeks so if you haven’t already please subscribe so you are always up-to-date!
