    Quick question please, need help

    Ok, i know this isn't the photoshop forum but it takes days to get answers there and i just have a quick question.
    Everytime i use the eyedropper sampler thing (holding alt while using the airbrush then grabbing a color off the canvas) It recently started grabbing the color as a background color instead of a foreground color. So now every time i try and grab a color i have to hit "x" to switch foreground/background colors and it's really screwing up my workflow, and i don't know how to fix it and i know it's just some stupid hotkey i dont know about.

    Click on the foreground swatch on the tool palette. I think you might have it click on the background swatch. Hope that helps.
