A color picker tool is a visual user interface widget, most often found in online graphics applications or graphics editing programs, that is used to manipulate the color palettes and colors chosen by the user in the same time. It provides the user with control over the various colors selected and the effect they create. The color picker also enables you to edit the existing color scheme and apply different effect to the selected color scheme.
Color pickers come in two forms: the standalone tool and the plug in tool. The standalone tool can be downloaded as a free download or can be purchased to use on your computer from a variety of websites. The standalone tool allows the user to choose the color scheme, effects, and colors on their own without having to install the plug in utility. You will need to configure and install the plug in utility after selecting the desired color scheme and effects.
The plug in utility is usually a part of a broader utility application and must be installed on the operating system of the computer from which it was downloaded. It must be compatible with the operating system in order for the user to successfully use the utility. In some cases the user may have to first download the utility, configure, and then install the plug in utility before the utility application can be used. The plug in utility provides a user with complete control over the color scheme and effects. It can be customized to fit your particular needs or preferences.
After installation, users can run the utility tool from their computer without a need to configure or install it first. It is however recommended that users go through the instructions provided on the utility tool to ensure that it can be used properly.
Many times you will find that the color picker utility tool will require you to download a picture or image in order to customize and apply the color scheme that you have chosen. If you are not familiar with the format in which an image is placed into the utility tool, you may find that it is impossible for you to customize the image and the results that it produces. If the image is not a JPEG or other type of format then the tool will not be able to change the color scheme or effect produced by the image.
You may also have to adjust the size of the colors on the image in order to correctly match the size of the color scheme that you have chosen. When you are able to adjust the size of the colors on the image then the color scheme and effect will appear correctly. This process can take time to accomplish depending on the image format that is being used.
When you are using a color picker tool, be aware that you can only change the selected colors on the images that you have loaded in the utility. You cannot change the background color of the image or any other portion of the image. As a result, the colors you select for your website or the color of the links on your website will not be changed. Instead, you will need to use the color scheme in your design and the color scheme used in your text.
To avoid confusion, you should always use a program that allows you to preview your current color scheme and effects prior to loading the utility or image that you are using to ensure that your color scheme and effects appear in their correct format. If the preview feature does not exist in your tool, you can go to the color picker tool's user interface and select the preview option and choose "show background color", or you can click on a color and then select "show effect", or you can go to the effects tab on the color picker tool and then select the effect that you want to use in your design.
