Tech Tip: Color Cop for PCs

Ever wished your font color matched your background or clipart? You can make it happen!

There's a great, free tool called Color Cop that lets you do this. I don't have Publisher or a Mac, so I don't have those nifty tools. I use Power Point on my PC.

I created a little tutorial for you. You can either watch my first ever video or just scroll on down through the pics :)











(You just drag the dropper over to the background/clipart you want)












 






I hope this helps you out!

  1. Oh thanks so much! I used to use Publisher, but since I've move to Powerpoint, I missed being able to match colors!

  3. That's pretty cool! I have always just gone through the color tools in Powerpoint and tried to match it the old-fashioned way through the custom color tool. I'll have to give this one a try on my next project :)
