Hi Stephen

No - not with the eyedropper. However, you can use the operating system colour picker to pick up colours from the image. I just imported an image, and then drew a rectangle to the side. With the rectangle selected, I click the colour picker on the Attributes palette and chose the OS color picker. On the Mac, I can then select any colour on the screen, including those on the image.

Hope that helps.

It looks like this option is only available on MACs,

I dont see that on the PC.

Tech guys please add this option on the pc.

You can also create a new Texture and use the a color swatch as the image. It needs to be a clear, clean, unshadowed swatch otherwise it will not tile smoothly.
