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!

  2. Ooooooooooooh thank you thank you thank you!! I was wondering about this and had tried everything I could think of!! Yay!! Thank you for this tip!!

  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 :)

  6. I cant wait to use this! I always defaulted black text because I couldn't truly match the colors!

  7. Thank you for linking up this week at my Thursday's Tech Tips for Teachers and showing my follower such a terrific tip! This is so much easier than the program I was using! :)
