This is proably very simple, but I'm just not getting it. I want to add a color from a photo into my swatches. I hit the eyedropper and click on the color. I then go to a new swatch - and it's white. I click on the color again, and nothing. What am I doing wrong?
Hi, after piccking you color by eyedroper tool, just right-click fill color square in toolbar menu - context menu appears - add color to swatches - depending on picture mode your new colour might be in RGB mode - so you can edit it.
I do that and nothing happens. Maybe I don't understand what "Fill-Color Square" means - I tried it with the fill color on the swatches panel and nothing. When I right-clicl on the Apply button on the toolbar, it gives me a previous color. I right-click on the Fill (x) on the toolbar and nothing happens.
Hi, nice screenshot. Just one idea. Is it one layer document. Is your eyedropper sampling directly picture or is not there an empty frame which causes its emptyness? I stay signed in for about 30 minutes - I cannot put down my e-mail address here, so I do not know, how I can help you more.
You can expand the Color panel to see the proxies there (but the proxies are the same in the Color panel, Swatches panel, and toolbox and you can make the swatch from any of them). However it doesn't appear you've picked up a color, and Kalajda's guess as to why is probably correct.
I'm so embarassed - I knew it was something stupid - the text box was above the color I sampled. When I clicked on another area of the picture, it worked perfectly. Thanks, everyone (and especially Rob!!), for sticking with me!!
