Hey guys.
So I am wondering if there is a way to copy an image's colour in preview i.e can I select a section of an image to copy its colour? If so, how do I do it?

Thanks very much.

Welcome to Mac-Forums..

No, Preview doesn't have that functionality. You can adjust colors of an image but you can't grab the color at a specific spot/region. You'll have to use a photo/image editing app for that..

Pixelmator, Affinity Photo, and many more. You can search them out using Google or go to the Mac App Store and search.

What about the Apple Digital Color Meter.app or has Apple removed that from recent OS X versions??

Or maybe something like this or some of the comment's suggestions from here:
