Working with Color

Working with ColorHello gangs.. Today we're gonna talk about a few tips using color in photoshop on your image. Color can be manually described in several ways using a color model such as RGB or CMYK. As you work in your image, you specify colors using one of the color models. In Photoshop you choose the approach to color that’s appropriate for your image and how it’s being used.

Photoshop lets you choose wisely and create colors by using a huge variety of industry-standard color palettes, color mixers, and color models. The nicest one, you allowed to create and edit custom color palettes to store frequently used colors for future use.

Let me tell you this, you can also easily customize how a color palette appears on your screen by changing the size of swatches, the number of rows, and other properties.

Choosing colors

If you haven’t installed your PSD Portable (for example), so.. begin by reading some information on installation and other preliminaries. Before you begin working with your color section of an image presentation, take a few moments to read an overview of Adobe Help and of the many resources available to users. You have access to instructional videos, plug-ins, templates, user communities, seminars, tutorials, RSS feeds, and much more.

You can choose fill and outline colors by using fixed or custom color palettes, color viewers, color harmonies, or color blends. When you want to use a color that already exists in an object or document, you can sample the color to achieve an exact match.

Fixed or custom color palettes

Fixed color palettes are provided by third-party manufacturers. Some examples of these are HKS Colors, PANTONE, and TRUMATCH. It may be useful to have on hand a collection of color samples that shows exactly what each color looks like when printed.

Working with Color

Custom color palettes can include colors from any color model or fixed color palette. You can save a custom color palette for future use. For more information about working with custom color palettes, see "Creating custom color palettes" and "Opening and editing custom color palettes."

Sampling colors

When you want to use a color that already exists in a drawing, you can sample the color to achieve an exact match. By default, you sample a single pixel from the drawing window.

Working with ColorColor viewers provide a representation of a range of colors by using either one-dimensional or three-dimensional shapes. The default color viewer is based on the HSB color model, but you can use this viewer to choose CMYK, CMY, or RGB colors. The default color viewer is based on the HSB color model, but you can use this viewer to choose CMY or RGB colors.

Color harmonies

Working with ColorColor harmonies work by superimposing a shape, such as a rectangle or a triangle, over a color wheel. Each vertical row in the color grid begins with the color located at one of the points on the superimposed shape.

The color harmonies let you choose a color model, and they are most useful when you need to choose several colors for a project.

Color blends

Working with ColorWhen you choose a color by using color blends, you combine base colors to produce the color you want. The color blender displays a grid of colors that it creates from the four base colors you choose.
