Getting More Readouts Per Eyedropper
In Photoshop CS2, the Color Sampler tool can give you readings from up to four different places, but the Color Sampler in Camera Raw is more powerful and monitors even more areas for you. Each time you click the tool, another set of readings appears at the top of the Camera Raw dialog, and although it looks like six is the maximum number of color samplers you can add to your image (because the top of the Camera Raw dialog looks full), you can actually add three more (for a total of nine color samplers). Try it, and you’ll see the six samplers squeeze to accommodate three more samplers. Now, I have to say, if you need to monitor the color in nine different areas of your image, perhaps working with RAW images shouldn’t be your biggest concern.
