Introduction - Color Choices
Good color combinations help to assure a vibrant web site. You should make note of at least three compatible colors that you like. There are several options for choosing the favorite colors you may want in your web site.
- 1) You can save color samples for the webmaster from swatches or magazine clippings;
- 2) You can use the above chart.
Each of the colors above has a unique name and index number. It is a good idea to write down the colors you like best.
The color chart on this page was created for accurate display. In order to see the colors properly on your own computer, you should be sure to calibrate the color accuracy of your monitor from your computer if it is not already calibrated.
How Color Chart Was created - Technical Memo
- 1) An Apple Macintosh computer was used. The Apple platform is renown for color control capability. But the type of computer used to receive this web page is not critical;
- 2) Our monitor was set for "millions" of colors, the normal setting;
- 3) The monitor color was carefully calibrated using the Apple "Monitors" control panel;
- 4) Screen shots were made of the entire color palette in Adobe GoLive web mastering program;
- 5) Each screen shot was checked for accuracy in Adobe Photoshop. One by one, numerous colors were sampled randomly from the screen shots using the Eye Dropper tool. Each time a color was obtained in Eye Droppe, the color was opened in Photoshop. Each time, the color sampled in Photoshop provided a specific index number that matched the number adjacent to each color as it appeared in the GoLive palette. This is excellent evidence of a perfect match (meaning that the colors on this page have not deviated in the slightest from their original values);
- 6) Each of the six screen shots containing multiple color samples was then saved as a JPEG at level twelve, the maximum quality, in order that you will see this page at optimal color accuracy.
