Help please!
I am trying to understand the colour picker/dropper tool and hope someone can advise

i have a rectangle, I colour it red ff0000.  I create another rectangle, use the colour picker and hover over the first rectangle to choose the same red. 

the pixel square in the middle of the circle goes red, but it’s not selecting that colour, instead it Selects a grey.  

I found that moving the picker around the box at some point the outside circle goes red, but as the whole box is the same colour, why would it only be on certain points that it selects?  

this happens in various tests and means I cannot use the picker the way I’d like which is to select colours from images 

ive made a video of an image I’ve got. By enlarging, I can see the various pixel colours, but as the video shows, the picker isn’t picking up many of them. 

please advise, am I doing something wrong?  
thanks

Colour is selected on release. Use the colour dropper on tool bar if you want to average colour across several pixels
