Solidworks - Grab color from image?

Solidworks - Grab color from image?


I am using 2007. Is there a way to grab a color from an image in Solidworks? I have a picture(.jpg) of a leadwire. I want to apply the color from the leadwire picture to the model.



RE: Solidworks - Grab color from image?

Probably just as fast to grab the color in MS Paint or a photo editing program, then note RGB values.  You may want to grab multiple samples, as there can be variation pixel-to-pixel.

I'm with The Tick.  I have a RGB color chart posted on my office wall for just such occasions.

Thanks for the responses. Anna thanks, that was what I was looking for. I am suprised SW doesn't have one of these built in.
