Hey guys, it would be extremely helpful to have an eyedropper in order to sample color for best on-site match of our design.
Thanks a lot for the splendid work. I love working on Webydo.
for text styles (fonts, color, size, drop shadow)
for shape styles (drop shadow, opacity, color, stroke...)
for objects/jpg/png styles (drop shadow, opacity)
It´ll be a very very professional issue to have an eyedropper so that we can sample graphic elements´colors into Webydo´s shapes . Sometimes is so hard to match the color of certain shapes created in Webydo editor with a vignette or icon we place in the creation process...i personally lose a lot of time.
Eye Dropper Tool for Colour selection to make it easier to match graphic colours
The eye dropper tool is used to pick up a color value from the canvas. This is a very useful tool because there will be many times when you want to switch colors while painting to a color already on your canvas and you do not want to go all the way through the color chooser dialog.
Seems like an essential feature for every graphic designer. I definitely use it a lot in other applications.
We are still working on adding in the eye dropper feature and seeing when we will be able to add it into the Webydo studio.
For now, you can set your colors in Site Presets. You can set your 6 main site colors so you don't need to look them up or screen print for each time you set a color.
The Webydo Team
We all love webydo and for alot of us it is like working in photoshop, the only thing missing is the Eyedropper tool! We would all love to be able to select colours for parts of the site using the content that already exists, As it stands a lot of us are constantly "Print screening" then opening in photoshop to use THEIR eyedropper tool to get the colour hex. Long winded and frustrating.

You should be able to access the colour codes of your saved colours in the "Site Presets" section.
However, this really is a great idea and something that has already come up. We will definitely take this into consideration in our next updates.
For real graphic designers dealing with colors with fast selectors such as colorpickers is a must.

At first I thought this it a great idea, but then I think how spoiled we already are with features unmatched in the industry. A browser add-on can suffice.
I would prefer they work on parallax scrolling or something we cannot achieve now.

try installing Colorzilla for FF or chrome..!!
However, beloved Webydo team- - - it would be great to have Mac's color management in order to save color palates for each site/client
Bring on the eyedropper please .... very quick and time saving for color and tone duplications. Never realized how much I used it on last program until migrating over to Webydo.
Yes just use Colorzilla or similar browser extension for FF or chrome

Thats great idea to match the color to the colors of the pictures

Mac's color management is really ideal. It saves color palates for each site and client so you can use them across client work... please 'o please add to Webydo!:)

I know designers aren't fans of this, but if push comes to shove, you can use hex codes as a workaround for now. I found a website which lists palette info across primary colors, pastels, browns, etc. with the matching hex codes: http://www.tinygorilla.com/Easter_eggs/PallateHex.html

If you design in Firefox you can just enable the colorzilla add-on and it comes with an eyedropper, color picker, etc right in the browser.
Great idea, it would be an awesome time saving tool.
Hi Gabriella -
Can you share the name of the browser tool you are using? I would love to use that in the meantime until the Webydo team will figure this one out :)
I am using an browser tool for that..but having it in the system would be so much better!
I agree with Julia. Graphic designers are in constant need for the grace of the eyedropper..!! Bring it in :)
I see you are trying to be like a graphic program, and that feature is necessary for that
