Pick Colors from Image

Here is something that may not be obvious if you’re the type of person who doesn’t like to poke around.

The Color Editor gives you have the ability to sample color from the interface. Nothing really new. I mean, what software can’t do that? Oh that’s right!

One cool thing that I completely overlooked was the ability for the Color Editor to load an image to sample from. Go ahead and click on that second button on the top, right-hand side of the Color Editor.

Voila! You know, it’s the simple things that make it all worthwhile.
