Color Sampler Tool

Color Sampler Tool allows you to view color values in defined spots of your image:
  • In the Toolbox, select the Color Sampler Tool.
  • Click on the image where you want to set the first sampler. Sampler #1 appeared in Info palette shows the current values in your color channels.
  • You can set up to 4 color samplers on your image.
  • Samplers get saved in your image, so you can know color values in defined spots even after you reopen the image.
  • In the Options bar, you can change sample size (sampler's range). Point Sample reads out values from a single pixel; 3 by 3 and 5 by 5 read average values from larger areas.
  • You can move samplers with Color Sampler Tool to any other spot to read color values from.
  • As default a sampler's readout on info palette depends on color mode of your image (on animation - RGB); you can however choose other readout: right-click on a color sampler and choose in context menu other color mode.
  • To hide / show annotations use [Ctrl+H] shortcut.
  • To delete a sample, either use context menu (movie) or Alt-shift-click on it (mouse-click holding [Alt+Shift] keys pressed).
