    Having difficulty switching to the paint tool once I have color selected. Please provide clearer steps. Thanks.

    @Pamela, once you’ve selected the color, simply click to select the Brush Tool in the Tools palette.

    How can I find the Eye Dropper Tool on the iPhone version of Pixelmatorâ„¢?

    Tim, you can use the Eye Dropper Tool when painting with one of the brushes by touching and holding a color in your image. Or you can also use it from the Color Picker, and there’s more information about this in the relevant section of our Pixelmator for iOS User Guide right here:

    Is this option has on free trial too ?? I am trying to find but I can’t…

    Appreciate if someone could help with this

    It does indeed, but it was moved to the bottom right corner of the Tools palette in one of the later versions of Pixelmator. If it’s not there, you can also add it by going to Pixelmator > Preferences > Tools and then dragging the Eyedropper to your Tools palette.
