Unlock and watch the full step by step tutorial below to learn exactly how to copy any colour palette on the web.

Step 1: Install Eye Dropper Chrome Plugin

First you need to install the Google chrome plugin, so from Google Chrome, go to the Eye Dropper Chrome plugin page via: this link and click 'add to chrome' to install the plugin.

Step 2: Pick the colour from a web page

Now you need to use Google Chrome and navigate to the website you would like to copy the colour from, click the Eye Dropper chrome plugin icon, then press 'Pick color from web page'.

Step 3: Put your mouse over the colour and click

To pick the colour you would like to replicate, simply put your mouse over it and click on the page.

Step 4: Copy the colour code

To access the colour code, simply click the eyedropper tool again and copy the code which starts with a hashtag.

Step 5: Paste the code in your image editing tool/software

In this example we have used Canva, clicked on the colour of the background of this design, clicked the plus and then pasted in the colour code.

    Great tip!

    • Thanks David 🙂 When I found it I was so pleased. I used to print screen the website and then use paint to use an eye dropper tool but this way is so much easier!
