Free Tools to Enhance the Creative Studio
These are some of our favourite FREE tools that will help you make the most of the TrouDigital studio and enhance your digital signage content
When creating digital signage content, ensuring your designs match your brand colours is extremely important. Fortunately, there’s a free tool called ‘ColorPick Eyedropper’ that allows you to hover over any colour, and then generate a unique ‘colour code’.
The ‘Colour code’ can then be copied and pasted into the TrouDigital Studio. This simplifies the process of matching colours to your organisation’s brand guidelines.
Here’s a link to download ColorPick Eyedropper*. Our video below explains how to use the tool with the TrouDigital studio:

If you haven’t already used Canva, we recommend giving this free-to-use**, feature-rich design tool a try. Canva has thousands of templates, stock images, and other free tools to create eye-catching designs to take your digital signage content to the next level.
When using Canva for digital signage, remember to set the dimensions of your designs to match your digital signage display. Generally this will be 1920 x 1080 (Pixels) for a landscape screen, or 1080 x 1920 (Pixels) for a portrait screen.
To do this within your Canva account, please do the following:
- Click ‘create a design’ in the top right corner.
- Select ‘+ custom size’.
- From the dropdown box on the right ensure that ‘px’ is selected.
- Select the dimensions to either of the above depending on your screen.
- Finally, click ‘create new design’.
