Create a Color Palette from a Scanned Image

In this Illustrator tutorial, I will be sampling colors from a scanned magazine page, with the Eyedropper Tool, to create a Color Palette.

I will also demonstrate how to make a Tint of a color and change a color with the Color Picker Tool.

This technique is easy and fun, and once the colors are selected there’s multiple options for further adjustments.

I’m using a magazine image, because I find endless color inspiration this way, but the process is the same for a photograph.

In this first video, I’ll demonstrate how to sample colors with the Eyedropper Tool:

In this next video, I’ll demonstrate how to adjust colors with the Color Picker Tool, and create a Tint of your original color.

I really hope you enjoyed this Tutorial!
