The Procreate eyedropper, also known as the Procreate color picker, can apply color to areas on the canvas in conjunction with other tools like the brush or eraser. It’s frequently used to make gradients or color transitions between two colors.
When working with images imported into Procreate, the eyedropper tool comes in handy. It is used to sample pixels from the original image in this case. This enables you to make new layers based on the color values in the image.
But where is the eyedropper for Procreate? If you’re just starting out, it might be challenging to locate. Don’t worry, though; we’ve got you covered! We’ll show you how to use the eyedropper in Procreate and how to access the Procreate color picker.

The modify button is the square on the screen’s left side. Keep your finger on the sidebar’s modify button. Tap anywhere on the canvas with your other hand. Drag the color drop tool to the color you want. To choose a color, let go of your finger. This can also be done with the Apple Pencil.

How to Use the Eyedropper Tool in Procreate to Create a Color Palette
If you dig a little deeper into Procreate, you’ll find yourself wanting to make your own color palette. This is accomplished by sampling colors from various parts of your canvas with the Procreate eyedropper tool.
Step 1: To begin, import a photo or open a project where you’ll be using the colors for your color palette.
Step 2: Then, on the left side of the screen, hold down the modify button (the square) and drag the eyedropper to the part of the image you want to sample. You should see a circle around the area you touched with the eyedropper. The old color is on the bottom, and the sample color is on top; this color is replaced in the color panel.
Step 3: Remove your finger from the modify button. The color at that location will now be sampled by your eyedropper. This can be seen in the top right color panel.
Step 4: On the top right, select the color panel. This brings up the palette menu for the color panel. Then, to make a new color palette, press the big + button. Choose “Create new palette” from the drop-down menu. This creates a new color palette that is entirely empty. Using the color drop tool, we’ll fill this in with colors.
Step 5: Select an empty field with no color on your newly created color palette, then press and hold this field until a new pop-up appears. Then select “Set current color” from the drop-down menu. And you’ve used the eyedropper tool to place your chosen color swatch in your newly created color palette.
Repeat this process until you’ve achieved the color palette of your dreams.
