I honestly have no clue how to describethis thing, and I'm not sure how it appeared. It goes away when I use the transform, move, or select tool, but reappears if I try to use a brush on a layer. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi @mvs94  It's called the Color Sampler tool and it shares space with the Eyedropper tool. Select the tool again, then: Alt+Click on it to delete it Remove all in the options bar Drag it out off the canvas The keyboard shortcut is Shift + Eyedropper + Click, which may be how you got it accidentally. It does not print. https://jkost.com/blog/2018/03/the-eyedropper-color-samplers-and-info-panel-in-photoshop-cc.html Scroll to "The Color Sampler Tool" heading. Jane

Hi @mvs94 

 

It's called the Color Sampler tool and it shares space with the Eyedropper tool.

 

Select the tool again, then:

  • Alt+Click on it to delete it
  • Remove all in the options bar
  • Drag it out off the canvas

 

The keyboard shortcut is Shift + Eyedropper + Click, which may be how you got it accidentally. It does not print.

You're welcome, @mvs94 , I can see that it could be baffling!

The Info panel [F8]  is arguably one of the most important panels in Photoshop, the colour sampler/s will be shown there for evaluation.
