Having a little issue here that has me completely stumped. Whenever I duplicate an artboart, it changes the colors slightly. I Here is how it looks. enter image description here

You can see that the artboard on the left is a shade of grey, whereas the one on the right is slightly bluer. What gives? What am I missing? Thank you so much in advance! Any ideas much appreciated!


They are the same.

It's an optical illusion due to the gradient and the UI coloring.... Which is why I stick to the Light UI coloring.

That's the right side overlaid on the left side.. there's no edge showing any color variation.

When you are uncertain about this, it's a simple matter to select the object and check the Color Panel for the numbers used. If they are the same... it's an illusion. You can also use the Info Panel to just hover your cursor over various areas and see the numbers related to the color breakout to verify they are the same.

  • Well I took the photo into photoshop. The background colors appear to be different. Right one seems more saturated than the left. – bob Jun 9 '17 at 3:13

    "Seems more" is not very definitive. And well.. that's kind of the definition of "illusion" isn't it? for something to "seem" different when it actually isn't. :) Open the info panel... hover your cursor over different areas.. read the numbers.. they are the same (at least here based on the posted screenshot). – Scott Jun 9 '17 at 3:15
  • Color on the right is f1fdf and the color on the left is f6f8f8. – bob Jun 9 '17 at 3:24

    Interesting.. since the info panel doesn't provide hex colors and using the eyedropper can average a color over several pixels and requires clicking the exact same location for both sides. Clearly you refuse to believe me.. so good luck! I don't know what else to tell you. – Scott Jun 9 '17 at 3:57
