Here is a suggestion: the default would be to use the same tool for
all images, as we do now. But there would be a new button or checkbox
associated with the image, with a description (tooltip) saying
something like "lock active tool for this image" or "remember tool".
Any image (or any view?) that has this option turned on would always
use the same tool, even if you change the "global" active tool. That
would allow you to associate the color picker with one image, while
you are switching tools freely for the other images.
