The Eyedropper tool allows you to set the foreground or background color by picking it from your image.

Choosing a Color

Click on any point of the image to select the color. Use the left mouse button to select the foreground color, or the right mouse button to select the background color. Click and hold while moving to see the exact color being selected.


If you click once on the Eyedropper tool and select a color, the last-active tool will be selected automatically, saving you an extra click. If you want the Eyedropper tool to remain selected or "stick", double-click on it.
