Have Your Pick of Colors
Did you know that there’s a “Photoshop like” Color Picker in Illustrator? Just double-click on the Fill box at the bottom of your Tools palette or in your Color palette and the Color Picker window will open. After picking your perfect color, click OK and drag the Fill box from your Color palette to the Swatches palette and Save it as a Swatch to use again and again.
