When monitoring a pixel sometimes the form will have shadows or clouds, ever so slightly, I want to have this trigger when a pixel changes more drastically.  Any way to monitor this within a color range?  Or do I have to say, when it sees a certain color then trigger?

thx for your help, Jake

Hello,

I do apologize but it will have to be a specific color, you can add multiple If pixel exists but you can not run one action to cover them all.

Is there a way to check the pixel number associated to a location, then to determine a gradient range of color?  For example going from a lightened green to solid green?

Is there another option that checks not just one pixel, but a range from the upper left to lower right, for example a square box?

Hello James,

 

We don’t have an action that will determine a grade range. You can try the Wait for Pixel action, you will need to specify the color and x and y coordinates. If you are expecting to see a solid green color the step will wait till this pixel color shows up in the specified x y coordinate.
