A Practical Shortcut to Use the Eyedropper Tool in Aseprite

In Aseprite, you can select the Eyedropper tool (regular keyboard shortcut: I) by holding down the Alt/Options key on your keyboard.

While your pencil tool is selected (B), do the following:

  1. Hold down Alt/Options to quickly switch to the Eyedropper and click on the color you want to grab.
  2. Let go of Alt/Options to immediately switch back to your pencil.
  3. Start drawing!
