I'm a fairly new user of AP (after many years of PS), so I have a question: 

does anyone know what the sample size of the eye dropper tool is, and is the size adjustable (sometimes I need a 3 x 3 px size, sometimes 30 x 30 px is needed). 

Thanks in advance for the answer(s).

Hi Guydw,

Welcome to the forum

 

The colour picker is a pixel size select only for a larger sample area use the brush tool and adjust to the required size then hold down the option (alt) key and press the mouse button and move the mouse slightly and the brush colour will change to match the colour below the brush.

 

Regards,

Darren

in version 1.4.1 of Color Picker unfortunately does not work that way. It is only the color of the center pixel used.

Is there a way to select 5 by 5, 3 by 3, etc? Seems it is only doing 1 pixel color selection
