How to pick colors from an image?

  2. Pick colors from the image: Move your mouse over the image (or your drag your finger, on mobile), and click on the specific color that you want to select. The current color code will be displayed in a magnifying lens at all times. Repeat this process to pick multiple colors from the image.
  3. Copy color code: Once you have picked the colors that you want, you can copy the color codes by clicking on the "Copy" icon besides the color code on the right. The selected color is shown in 3 common formats: Hex, RGB/RGBA, and HSL/HSLA. You can paste these color codes into your design software or HTML/CSS code.
