While painting, I use the color picker to pick one of the color on my object. However, the color picker does not pick the exact color that I have selected.


What am I doing wrong?


Viewport colors are affected by lighting and color profile.
To display unchanged colors in the viewport, you need to do two things:

  • use the Emission shader (it's not affected by lights)
  • change View Transform to Standard

(Or just open your image texture in Image Viewer and pick color from there.)
