Changing Colors with HEX codes & RGB

When choosing a color you can choose to enter very specific colors with HEX Codes (Mac Only) or RGB Values (Mac and Windows). Just enter the value and apply (note that you sometimes have to tab out of the field to apply the color in the color picker).

Mac HEX & RGB Codes

You’ll find the Mac Hex and RGB code entry points in this tab under this drop down.

Windows RGB Code

You’ll find the Windows RGB entry dialog under the custom colors button.

Sampling a Color

It’s possible to sample a color from your photo or design using a color picker. On a Mac, this is built in. On Windows, simply download one of the many free color pickers available for Windows.

On a Mac click the eye drop to sample a color.

On Windows, use one of the free color pickers to get an RGB value and then enter that value into the custom color dialog.


In Fundy Designer it’s possible to fully customize any design you use or create. You can make any design match your brand. Remember, than after creating something you can always save it as a Design Set  (link) to use over and over again.
