Actually it is a more interesting question that I originally thought. I made some tests. Yes it mesures 127 on all channels. I thought it was gray but when I saw the levels on that layer it is actually black. I think there is no way to change opacity to 200%. The workarround is to duplicate this layer several times and combine them. The first time the ...

I had previously posted a little update to the information about my plugin that allows to do what the original starter of this post was asking. The update stated: I just added the possibility to export in FBX 7.2 format. So now it works even better with Unity. I agree that it was lacking in information. So I will explain a little further. The original ...

Getting the RGB value of a pixel should be easy, but it isn't because Photoshop premultiplies the alpha as layer transparency, and does not let you access the RGB channels without the transparency applied. I can think of a few techniques to get there, an easy one is to use Flaming Pear's Solidify-B plugin (free). For clarity, Solidify-B attempts to fill the ...

Unless the pixel you are looking at is on its own layer, it is impossible to tell whether the colour was applied as a low-opacity "pure" colour or a full-opacity mixed colour. In your example, a pixel that was the result of using 50% opacity black on a white background is identical to a pixel that resulted from applying 50% grey (or, rather, (128,128,128)) ...

If you switch over to the CMYK gamut, I suspect you will get mixes much more like what you would expect from physical pigments. There are drawbacks though. One is that CMYK is a smaller gamut than RGB. For example, 100% K is only around 93% RGB black, so switching from RGB to CMYK, you may notice the colors flatten a bit. Another thing to watch out for is ...

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

In my experience, there are two major causes of this, and both boil down to a difference between RGB and CMYK output since even a CMYK image MUST be displayed on a monitor using RGB. First, if the grey tone isn't neutral to begin with (by having too much cyan in the CMYK mix, for example) it will show in the print. The second cause may be ICC profiles. ICC ...

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

Note down the CMYK color code of the grey color you have used in the flyer. Give it to the printing guy and ask him to specify the CMYK color code before printing it. As CMYK is readable well in print, it should work here as well.

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 ...

You could even directly subtract the hex color code from FFFFFF. Iʼm surprised that only two people actually answered with “scientific” explanations

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Sketch’s preferences can be found in: ~Library/Containers/com.bohemiancoding.sketch3/Data/Library/Preferences/ The global color swatches should be in there somewhere.

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 ...

As in the comments its not really an exact style. 8bit ish, Voxel ish, basically its hipster :) To go about making these, espescially for a game of any scale. I would use a pipeline of Illustrator (or Inkscape) and then import into Blender or another 3D program. While you could get away with making these in a 2D program. It'll be hard to maintain ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Roughly 99% of people use monitors/mobile phones with 24 bit or 32 bit display. Dithering won't occur with these (it can still occur with 16 bit display, but it's uncommon and simply causes trivially small longer loading times). So this is mostly not an issue in terms of dithering. However, there are different reasons why the web safe colors are useful. ...

You're going to need the Pantone colours for the things they print to get the match as close as possible. Once they give you these, you can use something like http://rgb.to to match Pantone colours to Hex colours you can use in Photoshop. Sometimes I literally run pallet prints, make sure you set your document up in CMYK and just test a colour in a few ...
