As Elmo Allén correctly notes, this is neither an optical illusion not a bug in your graphics editor, but an effect caused by the monitor technology you're using. Specifically, on a typical modern TFT-LCD computer screen, each pixel is actually composed of three separate subpixels arranged side by side, respectively colored reg, green and blue: Each of ...

It is hard to make exactly what everyone sees here, because everybody has their own display to see the image. On my monitor, if I squint, I could see a very thin black line between the left red rectangle and the green middle rectangle. And in contrast, between the right red and middle, I see a very thin white line. Basically, I understand the original poster ...

Really nice design! I think you definitely got the vibe right. Couple of things to consider: The email at the bottom, because the text is in the same font, it makes it a little difficult to read. If you made the first word bold, for example, that would separate it a little more. I find the alignment of the date and the word Lauantai a little confusing. ...

Since this is tagged as web-design: Although your purpose for these calendar images is not clear, in order to create this in the most dynamic way, I'd recommend using HTML's little know <time> element (which is supported back to IE9) and CSS as opposed to creating a bunch of variation images because it's much easier to update. Here's a basic ...

The subject is a bit challenging*. The short answer is: You look up the image profile, which contains the mapping to what it should look like in a known reference space. However this look-up tells you what its intended to look like, not what it originally was. So if you want to measure the values you need to have an untainted source. Basically that ...

If you changed your artboard background to white, you won't be able to see solid white objects unless you select them with the selection tool. This is just because there is nothing to differentiate the white object from white background, not because the actual white object was changed. To see your white object on white background you can do one of the ...

It doesn't affect lightness so it just can't be seen on the nearly white fence. It's working as intended though. My suggestion: Select the top of the fence Copy Paste Select the new layer Image > Adjust > Exposure -- reduce exposure a bit Select color replacement tool like you were and do what you were doing.

If there is a layer without transparency set in the Layers panel (it happens when some transparent layer was merged with any other) there's really no way you can find it's alpha property. But Joonas makes a good point, you can duplicate the layer X times till it gets 100% opaque and calculate the approximate alpha on your own.

You can also remove the black color in Illustrator itself. Once you have traced and expanded the image, you need to: ungroup the image (Command + Shift + G) select any one part of the image that contains the color you want to remove (black in this case) with the Direct Selection Tool (A) go to the Select menu > Same > Fill Color All components that ...

You'd be best off with using a Gradient Map. Using the eyedropper (I), sample a bright and a dark red and add them to your swatches. Adding white is a good idea, as well. Open your Layers palette (Window > Layers or F7) and click the black & white disc icon on the bottom: Add New Adjustment Layer. Choose Gradient Map and see a palette appear in which ...

Let's say you have these 2 shapes: You select them and grab Live Paint Bucket tool: Next, you just choose the color and click on the area you want to paint: To get shape of filled colors you should use expand command.

A quick and dirty way in photoshop would be to open the image in photoshop, go to image/adjustments/hue&saturation, select colorize and then tune the Hue and Saturation sliders. Because you are using a png, you might have to clip out the parts you do not want to be effected and leave those parts a layer above the copy of the image with the parts you need ...

Why not use the color schemes given by google: http://www.google.com/design/spec/style/color.html Find your original color of which u wish to find the contrast and find its adjacent numbers of other colors. For Ex. your original color is 600 of original color then the 600 of other colors can be selected of your choice

You can use the magic wand (Y) to select objects of similar, or even exactly the same, fill or stroke colour. double-click the tool in the toolbox to set the Tolerance to 1, meaning it will only select shapes of exactly the same colour. Be warned that, depending on your tracing setting, this may leave some not-entirely-black objects behind, you might need ...

Disclaimer: I have no experience printing on plastic bottles like this, but I can offer some insight as someone working in the printing industry. I was wondering if there is anyway to ensure accuracy in color output from my side. I thought choosing Pantone is the safest way to get the correct color. It could be the safest way, assuming that your ...

I don't think there is a straight cut answer, because this is a optical illusion (Everyone see's colors a little differently). Depending on what your end medium is I would suggest testing (print it out or test on different monitors/screens - also grab a few friends for their opinions). Trial and error would be my method starting with 2-3% increments. ...

Apple's Preview application can not render spot colors. In addition to a few other rendering bugs. This has been true for years. Apple doesn't appear to really care. The solution is simple. Stop using Preview to view PDFs if you want PDFs to be rendered correctly. Use Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat.
