How to match colors in Google Slides.

How to match colors in google slides

If you have worked with PowerPoint, you know that it has a built in eyedropper, so matching colors is a piece of cake. But if you are a Google Slides user, you need to get your hands on a Chrome extension to help you out.

I’ve been using ColorZilla and Eye Dropper, both work great!

Once you have the extension an eyedropper will be added to your Chrome toolbar. Simply click on it to activate it.

Hover with your mouse pointer the picture, shape or text that has the color that you want to match, then click on it. It will copy the HEX code to your clipboard.

Select the text or shape that you want to color, go to text color, border color or fill, depending on what you want, select CUSTOM and paste the HEX color. That’s it!

ATTENTION GOOGLE SLIDES USERS: PLEASE, DO NOT REQUEST FOR ACCESS. If you are prompted to “Request for access·” (sometimes it happens when you are logged in more than one Google account or when you are logged in a Google for Education account and your IT Admin has blocked the access), you can try again by logging in a personal Gmail account, and signing out of all the other accounts.

The other workaround is for you to download the pptx file, upload it to your Google Drive, and open it as Google Slides.
