The Go button should be bigger and have the highest contrast of all since it's the primary one. The Clear button is okay because it's a secondary action and it should be neutral. For me the Switch button has too much presence both in size and constrast. I'd position it between the Origin-Destination dropdowns, where it make more sense "by itself". Here ...

One solution is to visually separate your button by priority. You'd typically have primary button(s), secondary button(s) and sometimes tertiary button(s) and/or non-preferred action buttons. For Primary and Secondary, I usually suggest your preferred branding color (purely subjective) in two levels of contrast. High contrast for primary, slightly less ...

Most commercial printers will provide a color proof that is ostensibly a very good representation of the final output. Probably will have an additional cost attached to it, but definitely ask about it. If they decline to offer a proof before final printing, you may want to look around elsewhere for another printer. Also, make sure your image is in CMYK ...

Personally, I think you should show several pictures each with a separate hexagon to drive the point home. The advantage is that this is more explicit and leaves less to misunderstanding Image 1: Different hexagons in shape. There are others, I added the middle one to demonstrate one. PS: the problem with your statement is that there are indeed even ...

Bridge guides provide "process color simulations of all solid PANTONE Color". In other words, the bridge guides are all printed in CMYK to match Pantone spot colors as close as possible. You see the CMYK color on the guide along side the actual Pantone spot color. This lets you compare how close the CMYK color is to the spot ink. Formula Guides are printed ...

In commercial printing, the important factor is Ink Limits. In many cases, no part of a print piece can surpass 300% ink limits. What that means is you add up the % of each ink to determine the total coverage. This is just a sample to show the theory since what you posted is an RGB image and all I can do is convert it to CMYK here (Based on my color ...

Make sure when you select the gray Color not to include any colors in it .. let it black only .. it must not appear in other colors channels. this will ensure the gay will be pure gray. they gray you must use is something like that Cyan:0% Magenta:0% Yellow:0% Black:50% for example

match specific colors across different media (print and digital) There is no digital 'match'. Pantone is a company that sets color standards for custom printing inks (and some other things, but mainly printing inks). As Scott states, this is usually spot colors (the custom colors) but they also offer CMYK. Regardless, this all takes place in a ...

If your system or your application uses colour management, the RGB values of colours are converted from their original colour profile to the installed colour profile of your monitor when the colours are shown on your monitor. Typical print screen functions make a copy of the entire screen as it appears on your monitor; i.e., the colours get the converted ...

Red and Blue are both primary colours, which means they clash if their intensities are too similar. If you must make them work together, then you need to zap some of that intensity out. The less saturated they are the less they will give you that fuzzy nausea feeling when you look at it. Orange is naturally a complimentary colour to blue, so you could move ...

Colour Psychology Colours mean different things to different people. It's caused by the fact that we all live different lives, with different outlooks, and that we're all unique. Some say the beauty of humanity is in such differences. Trying to perceive the differences through your own biases is an exercise in futility. You can try to be fair, but it's ...

This may seem too obvious, but here's an idea. It leaves all colors as-is, and introduces immediately identifiable elements to help delineate between the subtle hex shapes

Most likely they blend in hsv space: #!/usr/bin/python # -*- coding: utf-8 -*- from Tkinter import * #~ root = Tk() #~ root.title("blend") #~ row = 0 #~ col = 0 #~ mycolor = '#%02x%02x%02x' % (64, 204, 208) from Tkinter import * from colorsys import rgb_to_hsv, hsv_to_rgb def ablend(a, fg, bg): return ((1-a)*fg[0]+a*bg[0], ...

If you are really interested in recoloring and not in the transformation of any sort, then standard technique is to use a "Color" mode for a layer that sets the colors. So, in the back layer you put the 32x32 image with correct details, but wrong colors. On top of it in the separate layer you take a 16x16 image with correct colors. Then rescale it to 32x32 ...

System color settings change everything I keep mine at sRGB for some measure of browser representation. I also use a bunch of other presets and screens to test for variation. Here’s an example of sRGB vs Adobe RGB. Variance within a screen Your problem seems odd, though. If the variation is from your color settings, you should see it across the ...
