[Solved] How to Measure areas of a Photograph?

Post by s2art » Mon Apr 09, 2018 3:31 am

Hi.
I've recently started using Graphic converter again, but have hit a wall?
The first feature I look for in a digital picture editing program is the ability to measure RGB values. This enables me to make decisions about levels curves, burning dodging etc. I have looked in the manual and can find no reference to a tool that measures only RGB values nor does the help menu.
Is there such a tool?
Or am I using the application incorrectly?

Hi,

there are two ways.

1. Permanent display of the color values below the mouse:
Just check the option (as shown in the image).
Open a new file and you will see the color values.

2. Open an image.
Go to the Window menu and show the Position.
Now select the color picker tool and pick in the image.
Or press the option key with other tools.
You will see the color value in the palette.
