vote 6 down vote favorite 2 I'm having problems with my color picker in photoshop CS5 Image 1: I select the black [ish] bar. Color picker returns gray. Image 2: I select the white [ish] background below the black bar, color picker returns lighter gray. Now I thought the color picker was using grayscale, so to test, I did the same with blue. Image 3: I select the blue, color picker returns wrong blue. Image 4: photoshop cc color picker not working I select the blue color one pixel higher than in image 3, color picker returns an even lighter blue. It's still the wrong blue, and the blue in image 3 and 4 is a solid color. Note: there are no layer styles present! adobe-photoshop color share|improve this question edited Mar 20 '14 at 8:05 Saaru Lindestøkke 9512925 asked Jul 9 '12 at 12:43 AlexMorley-Finch 284127 add a comment| 1 Answer 1 active oldest votes up vote 15 down vote Its because the colour picker is sampling a larger area than one pixel, and is mixing the colours.

What I'm talking about is when I select a color from the swatch palette it goes to the background color instead of the foreground color.
