The color picker in XD allows the designer to pick and use colors as HEX, RGB, or HSB, with the ability to save them in a swatches area. With simple steps, they can reorder and remove colors from the swatches area.
- [Narrator] Anytime I have an element selected that can have a fill, a border, or a shadow, I can see the color picker. So to see it I just click on this little rectangle here. In this case I wanna play with the fill color. Then I use the color picker here. I can then play with the hue, with the transparency. If I wanna pick an existing color from my desktop I can click here on the color picker eyedropper tool.
Then I just select let's say that blue, the cyan. I can get it that way. I can even change the number here for the color, from Hex to RGB or to HSB for hue, saturation, and brightness. And if I wanna save this for later, I can click on the plus button. I can get let's say, now I wanna save this blue that's on my background of that art board.
I can click there again. Let's say I also want this purple here. Let's add that. So now I have three colors saved as swatches on my color picker. So this is how I can save if I wanna reorder I just click and drag. And if I wanna remove something here, I can click and drag outside. So that's how I remove that from my color picker. In the color picker I can also play with the kind of color.
So let's say here I have that guy there. And let's say I wanna move from a solid color to a gradient. I just do it there. Or to a radial gradient, I just click there and it give me the radial gradient. You're gonna see gradients in a bit, but that's how you can activate and see your color picker, manage colors, add colors, remove colors, and reorganize them by moving around. Without opening the color picker, I can also get colors by clicking on this other eyedropper tool that's out of my color picker.
So I don't have to click twice to get that color. And this is also true for border and it's just from within this guy or from outside. It's really up to you to get there. So this is how you play with the color picker and how you manage your colors here to reuse in your project. And the last thing, remember if you bring your document from sketch and if you had colors there saved, all the colors will be shown here as well. Next let's see how we can play with linear and radial gradients.
