Use Eyedropper To Match Colors In PowerPoint 13
Are you tired of trying to match precisely the colors of images and objects to other parts of our PowerPoint Presentation, in order for all of them to match each other so we have a more professional Presentation? Well we don’t have to worry anymore, because this is where the Eyedropper tool comes in PowerPoint 13.
In order to use the Eyedropper tool in order to match and apply to the selected shape or object so we can match the colors between them is to follow on the following ways described below:
First of all we must select the image in our Presentation. Then the Picture Tools main tab activates as shown in the image below, and we make sure that the Format tab is selected as we can see below. Then at the right of the Picture Styles area of the ribbon we select the arrow at the right of the command Picture Border. Once selected the drop down menu appears where from the bottom of the drop down men we select the command Eyedropper as shown in the image below.
Again we select the image in our Presentation, and then we select the Home tab and locate the area of the ribbon which is named Drawing as we can see below. From this area we can either select the arrow at the right of the command Shape Fill or either the arrow at the right of the command Shape Outline. In either way the drop down menu will appear where we select the command Eyedropper. In the image below I have selected the command Shape Fill and then from the drop down menu the command Eyedropper.
If we select Shape Fill and then Eyedropper it will fill the selected shape with the color that we will take the sample from.
If we select Shape Outline and then Eyedropper it will change the color of the border of the selected image according from where we will take the sample from.
Another way to use the Eyedropper tool, we select the image again and do a right click on it, where the shortcut menu appears and we then select the Format Picture command which is located at the bottom of the shortcut menu as we can see in the image below.
Once selected the Format Picture task pane appears at the right of our Presentation. Here from the top of the Format Picture task pane we select the first icon from the left which is the Fill command. Then we activate the Solid Fill check button and then we select the Color button which is located at the right as shown below. Once selected the drop down menu appears with all the available colors and we select the Eyedropper command which is located at the bottom.
Once we have selected the Eyedropper tool with any of the ways described above, we move our pointer around the different colors and a live preview of the color will appear. Once we hover or pause on color that is in the image the RGB (Red Green Blue) color coordinates appear. All we have to do once we have found the appropriate color we just do a simple click and the color selected will be applied on the selected image.
In the image below we can see the RGB (Red Green Blue) color coordinates of the image.
In the image below I have selected the Smiley face shape and then I have selected the Eyedropper tool and moved around the Spiderman image in order to find the precise color that I want to apply on the smiley face. We notice the RGB (Red Green Blue) color coordinates as we can see below.
All we do then is to do a simply click on the desired color with the use of the Eyedropper tool and it has been applied on the selected Smiley Face as shown below.
That’s it!!! With just a couple of steps we can match the colors between different objects and shapes in our Presentation with the use of the Eyedropper tool.
