I learned a new trick today that is going to be very helpful in designing printables in PowerPoint, so I wanted to share it with you!
Have you ever used the eyedropper or magnifying glass tool to get the perfect text color in your PowerPoint?
Whenever I select the shade I want with the magnifying glass, it is always slightly off in color:
But there is a solution to this!
Sound confusing? I promise it's not!
First use the hex code. If you know your hex code, you will go to the next step. If you don't use hex codes, you can use a color code website (I'll be sharing one further down) to choose your favorite shades.
Head to the site hex.colorrrs.com:
Enter your hex code:
And the RGB will pop right up.
Now head into your PowerPoint slide. Highlight the text and choose the color menu, then More Colors:
Next, choose RGB Sliders. This is where you will enter the values you found for Red, Green, and Blue:
This will give your text the precise shade you want! And, it will stay in your recent colors in case you need it again during your design session:
If you don't normally use hex codes but would like to work with more precise colors, there are many hex code websites out there (this one is HTML Color Picker):
You can select the code of any color you would like to use in your design:
And convert it to RGB:
And that's it! I hope this was of some help if you have been looking to use more precise colors in your designs.
