Effect Editor: pick color from image?

Postby eadams » Mon Jun 23, 2014 10:16 am

Is it possible to pick a color from a loaded image with the eyedropper tool within the effect editor?

Example: I create a black border effect to use on my images. On one image I would like the border to be a shade of red that is present in the loaded image. In the border node I seem to be able to pick a color only from within the select color dialog box. Is there a way to pick a color from the source image from within the effect editor?

Yes, I think you can just drag from the colour swatch to anywhere on the screen.

Oh yes, thanks! I'm so used to clicking on a color somewhere, it didn't occur to me to drag the swatch to the image. It is just perfect! Thanks!
