Color Picker changing Sprite Color Error

I have a frustrating problem, where choosing a color at the bottom left is changing the color of the sprite. How do I stop this from happening?

It sounds like you’re in Indexed mode, in which every pixel corresponds to a particular entry in your palette, and modifying the colour in the palette will modify all instances of it in your sprite. To choose a new colour, you have two options:

  1. Create a new colour entry in your palette, and then modify it to be the colour you want.
  2. Switch to RGB Color in Sprite > Color Mode. This will decouple your palette from your sprite and colour picker, turning the palette into a list of swatches instead. You can toggle between the RGB and Indexed modes at any time.

Thanks for the help, yes it was in indexed mode
