Is there a way to get a colour from a picture on a Master Slide onto a shape to be added in Normal View - Eyedropper maybe?

Simple answer is yes, you can use the eyedropper in Normal view to select a pixel-based colour from a picture placed on a slide master layout.

Example:

PowerPoint eyedropper from slide master to normal view
In the above screen shot, a picture has been placed on a slide master layout. The view is then returned to normal and a shape inserted on the slide. Right-click on the shape and select Fill / Eyedropper or click the Format tab followed by Shape Fill / Eyedropper.

OK, that's a good sign. So I activate my master slide with the picture as I can see how you can have done. Then how do I colour my actual shape? Thanks :_)

Right-click the object to be filled (or outlined etc.), select Fill, then Eyedropper and then move the eyedropper over the pixel you want the colour for and then left-click to use that colour.
