    The cursor becomes a crosshair.
  2. At the desired point click with the left mouse button.
    Below the image in the area Image Colors you get the color values of the chosen point, which are displayed exactly in X and Y values.
  3. If required click Add to individual color palette to save the color values there.
  4. Repeat this process as often as necessary.
