Choosing Colors

The tools in Elements use the foreground color, the background color, or a combination of both. So before you use most tools, you should set these colors. Some tools give you the option of selecting a color for use with just that tool, as you’ll see shortly.

The simplest way to select a color for the foreground or background, or for exclusive use with a particular tool, is to click the appropriate color swatch, and then choose a color from the Color Picker (more on this in a moment). You’ll find the swatches for the foreground and background colors at the bottom of the toolbox; a separate swatch may appear on a tool’s Options bar, and if so, click it to display the Color Picker so you can change the color used with that tool.
