Working With Colors in Adobe Photoshop CC

Working With Colors in Adobe Photoshop CCAs I have said before, there are 16,700,000 colors that the human eye can see. When you are Working With Colors in Adobe Photoshop CC, you can use each and everyone of those colors. When you are doing a web site, or even print work, your client many times knows the exact one of the 16,700,000 colors that they use regularly for their web site or logo.

How can this be? There are so many colors, how do they know that the red you used for their logo is not the “right” red? Good question.

There are many formulas to come up with any one of the 16,700,000 plus colors that the human eye can see. But, you might get lucky and your client is blind. Then, you don´t have to worry about it.

For years, the print industry used CMYK for colors, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black ( yes the K is for black, who would know?).

With CMYK colors, each color would have a value between 0 and 255. That combination gives you more than 16,700,000 colors.

When Working With Colors in Adobe Photoshop CC in Web World, most of the time, people use hexadecimal values. These values are based on a base 16 system, thus, these values run:

0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,a,b,c,d,e,f

with F being the highest value. You will see how this works in the video.

With all of this math and everything, is would be great if you could save specific colors somewhere handy so that they are easy to find as you go from project to project. It just so happens that when Working With Colors Photoshop, there is a panel ( or a couple of panels ) that will store and even label the colors that you tell it to save and label.
