Selection from the subject image

Hold down the key (or choose select colour from the command control in the bottom left hand corner) and click in the work area to sample the subject colour from a 10px square (the select_area_click_width preference) or drag with the mouse pointer to create a rectangle from which the average colour will be sampled.

Selection from the canvas image

Same as for sampling the subject above but with the key held down as well. (Or choose canvas selection from the command control in the bottom left hand corner)
