7. Color and Indicator Area

7.1. Color Area

Figure 13.172. Color area in the Toolbox Palette

Color area in the Toolbox Palette

Color area

This area shows GIMP's basic palette, consisting of two colors, the Foreground and Background, used for painting, filling, and many other operations. Clicking on either of the color displays brings up a Color Editor dialog, which permits you to change it.

Default colors

Clicking on this small symbol resets the Foreground and Background colors to black and white, respectively. Pressing the D key has the same effect.

Swap FG/BG colors

Clicking on the small curved line with two arrowheads causes the Foreground and Background colors to be swapped. Pressing the X key has the same effect.

[Tip] Tip

You can click-and-drag one of these colors directly into a layer: it will fill the whole layer.
