How to use eyedropper in PowerPoint

If you want to match colors in your slides, use the eyedropper in PowerPoint. You can use the eyedropper feature to select another object’s color on your slide. It also allows you to extract the colors from shapes, images, or other elements on your slides in your PowerPoint presentation. You can use the colors you extract to make your presentation look more professional and uniform. Unlike other color generator tools that extract the entire color palette of an image, eyedropper only extracts one color, which is the one you click on.

How you use the colors and how they interact across your slides can hugely affect how your presentation appears. We know how important this is, so we will provide you with well-described instructions on how to use eyedropper as you create your PowerPoint presentation.
