Sample Ring Heads-up Display

When the eyedropper tool is activated, you can click and hold to bring up this Sample Ring. I like using this display to help me chose the right color to use.

Sample Color Outside of Photoshop

AWESOME! I’ve seen this done, but I couldn’t figure out how to do it. In the shot above, I’m sampling a color from the folders on my desktop. Sometimes you need to sample a color from something outside of Photoshop. You can do this by first clicking in the document, drag out of Photoshop, and release once you have sampled the correct color.
