Eyedropper Tool Options

Starting in Photoshop CS6, the Eyedropper Tool has three new settings in the Options bar for sampling colors. 

  • Current & Below” (samples the current layer and any layers below it),
  • All Layers no Adjustments” (samples all but Adjustment layers),
  • Current & Below no Adjustments” (samples the current layer and any layers below except the Adjustment layers).

These Eyedropper options help you save time and you no longer have to turn off visibility of Adjustment layers to sample a colors.
