I’ve had a problem with Photoshop’s eyedropper tool these few days that’s really really annoying. By default the eyedropper tool will sample a color from your image and add them to the foreground color in your toolbox. My eyedropper tool’s been adding the colors to my background color; which can be a real pain.
It turned out to be a simple single-click on the foreground/background swatch in the color palette will change the eyedropper’s default settings in sampling a color… d’oh!
See the black 1px border on the foreground swatch? That’s the default setting, if you click on the background swatch, the 1px border will switch to the background, thus making the eyedropper always sample the background color.
Any of you had the same experience? Btw I’m using Photoshop CS2, don’t know whether the same thing applies to any other version of PS.
