pipette - incorrect color


Recommended Posts

See attached image - Hoof.jpg

The external (border) color of that hoof is recognized by paint.net as #8C69A3.

But the line drawn with that color seems to look different (Line.png)

Can I get the color more accurately?

Hi @dmt05 welcome to the forum :)

 

It looks like the external border has a few different shades. You might want to Zoom in on the image and check across the width of the border pixel-by-pixel with the Color Picker tool to confirm this. I think you'll find five or six different colors there. If this is the case, it will make a difference which pixel you check for the color.

 

It also looks like you also have Anti Aliasing Enabled :AntiAliasingEnabled:. When this is on, the edges of the line are going to be 'softened' using intermediate shades. If you want the line to be exactly one color, change the AA setting to Disabled :AntiAliasingDisabled: in the tool bar.

The color picker is literally accurate, it's reading the pixel directly from the layer.

 

Also make sure you have Single Pixel selected, which is the default.

Let me give more details:

Here is me using color picker: PaintNet.png

 

color picker mode: 1 pixel

anti-aliasing: turned off

But still it feels that color is not exactly the same

You're sampling from one layer. What you see in the canvas represents the whole image, including the pixels that are blended in from layers above it.

 

If you want to sample the pixel that represents the final output pixel, changing the Sampling property to "Image".
