Can't get rid of "extra"

Discussion in 'Photoshop Tutorials' started by +++Bobby \O\+++, Mar 2, 2005.

  1. I must have done something inadvertently in order to get an "icon" on my
    picture. Looks like what you get when you sample a color (circle with small
    lines at North, South, East & West - and the number "1" next to it). I
    don't know how I got it there - but also don't know how to get rid of it.
    Can someone help me? Thanks.......

    I assume you're talking about a picture in Photoshop, or maybe Elements.
    I'll speak to Photoshop, and assume Elements behaves the same. This
    is the Color Sampler tool. It is in the same group of tools as the
    Eyedropper tool, and can be accessed from the flyout menu of the
    Eyedropper, or can also be set by clicking with the Eyedropper IF THE
    SHIFT KEY IS BEING HELD DOWN. If you select the Eyedropper tool and
    hover the cursor over it and press 'shift', you can click/drag it from
    place to place, including OUT OF YOUR PICTURE. When it is set (you can
    set up to 4 at a time), the point(s) gets monitored in the Info palette,
    so you can follow the effects of levels or curves adjustments on those
    precise points.

    Oops! Eff on my face. Sorry about the comment about assuming
    Photoshop. I just spent several hours in rec.photo.digital and I guess
    I lost track of that I had switched to a Photoshop group. Sorry. :>(

    Sorry just realised what you are talking about :-( it's a bit late at night
    try going to the 'colour sampler tool' short cut "I" then on the control bar
    click "clear".
