How to get color from an image in GIMP

Free picture retouching and enhancement software are available under the GNU Image Manipulation (GIMP) Software. A Color Picker Tool that samples a tiny portion of your image file is available in GIMP. The chosen color sample can then be duplicated to another image area, either as the foreground or background color. For instance, you can fill a shape made by an outlining tool from the Toolbox by copying an accent color from the image. Any image that has been opened on your screen can have a color selected using the Color Picker Tool. You can switch the active color of a picture to the color underneath the pointer by clicking a point on the image. The tool only works on the current layer by default, but the Sample Merge option allows you to select the color as it appears in the combined image once all layers have been combined. Only colors in layers that are visible are used. When you click on the image, an Information window appears. GIMP provides you with the Color Picker Tool to get color from an image.
