Copy the Hex or RGB color value from the web site CSS file. Set Photoshop's Foreground Color to that Hex/RGB value Create a New Layer above the stock image Fill the new layer with the foreground color (Edit > Fill) Set the Blend mode of this filled layer to Darken If necessary, create a Layer Mask on the fill layer and mask (paint) away any areas which ...

I've seen brand guidelines with wildly inaccurate HEX/RGB matches. To me.... when I see this, it seems like someone merely sampled the color in Photoshop and used whatever number shows up without any concern or thought of double-checking things. Often I figure they sampled a CMYK document and pulled the HEX from that. This causes more discrepancy for light,...

An ink can not match that color. I doubt any ink system, such as CMYK, or even CcMmYyK, will match it. There's no way to get the same vibrance in standard inks. Digital printing, while it may accept RGB color input, still outputs CMYK or CcMmYyK It doesn't print RGB. RGB is a light spectrum you can't print light. You might find a spot color (Pantone) that ...

Your image has a moire-like repeating pattern. I assume that you called it "the noise" . If one scans a printed image, a pattern of same type appears. But that doesn't cause global color errors. The "noise" can be greatly reduced in a good noise eliminating program that is smart enough to leave the edges as non-blurred. I tried "Open as Camera RAW" to have ...

One Answer is called color-management. You could profile your scanner with an X-Rite Colorchecker card and an X-Rite software or something like Argyll-CMS

Put simply, some RGB (RE:HEX) colors just can not be reproduced via CMYK. Your only option is to find something visually as close as you can. That often means ignoring the RGB?Hex numbers entirely and using your eyeballs to find a color, not software. The optimum method to do this is to look at physical Pantone books, not a screen. Because everything on any ...

Scott has already covered the basics of RGB to CMYK conversions, so I won't go over the same ground. If, however, you can persuade them to go with a spot colour, then purely on economic considerations, let them know about Reflex Blue. It's not a match for their RGB values, nor as close as Scott's Pantone 2736, but the one advantage it has is it's ...

You may wonder if there exists a material or non-electric light which looks the same as the said RGB screen blue. Of course that's perfectly possible. In the beginning there's of course the blue cobalt glass. White seen through it is that quite high chromaticity blue. I guess you expected something less obvious than simple blue filtering. Here are some: ...

The face of BG points to different direction and there's no direct sunlight. Your grabbed face doesn't need new highlights nor shadows except the back hair must be darker. The corner where some gloss could occur is hidden. In higher resolution the situation can be different. I tested light and color matching by inserting 3 masked adjustment layers and having ...

I'm pretty sure this can be done in numerous ways, since it's a black color things are even easier. Here are two ideas. Destructive: Use Replace Color on blacks of your layers and add +1 lightness Non-destructive with Blending Options: Place a color layer or adjustment layer that adds to brightness on to of your layers, add to brightness and set Blend If ...

Yes. RGB is part of the light spectrum - it's essentially the visible portion of the spectrum. How light interacts with objects, how it is reflected, refracted, etc. and otherwise combined can easily create colors within the RGB spectrum for real-world situations. (In fact, one could argue that everything you see in the "real world" is an RGB color) ...

You will have to create similar viewing conditions for both of the images if not industry standard ones. The colour matching is the subject of "Colour Management." Within that is what is called "Standard Viewing Conditions." It involves characterizing and calibrating your "display monitors" to match. The degree to which they match is an issue To begin, the ...

You need to calibrate your printer and your projector using specialized hardware like Colormunki photo. One primitive way to do it is to use your graphics card's software and tweak it a bit to get closer to the print. You also need to use some standardized lights to view the print. In modern led lights there is a unit called CRI (Color rendition index), ...

Okay, RGB values do not mean anything in themselves. They must be paired with the knowledge of what colorspace they represent. A RGB value in sRGB is very dofferent from one in ProPhoto RGB or Adobe RGB. Now this is very rarely said in even well made branding guides.Simply because many designers have problems with understanding this. While its not rocket ...

Hex codes for RGB colours are simply the RGB decimal numbers expressed in hexadecimal notation (base 16). The hexadecimal number for the green in the example shown is incorrect. The others are wrong too. The green should be #00E06C 00=0 E0=224 6C=108 Edit: As to why they are wrong, perhaps it's just an error. The colours are not the same RGB colours.

When using the Image>Adjust>Match Color feature... It may be necessary to remove elements from the source image that are not in the new image. For example, the yellow line in the road will cause the entire other image to have a yellow cast since the other image doesn't have any yellow to try and match it to. Remove the yellow line from the image, then try ...

It would seem the real solution to your problem is perhaps to address why the scanner isn't working properly. To replace it or borrow a working one would seem to be the obvious answer. Taking a photograph of the artwork is also possible. In the meantime, to address your actual question, it is possible to use the Select > Color Range option to make ...

My suggestion in this case would be to use the Healing Brush and Clone Stamp tools to smooth out the background rather than trying to adjust each layer individually. It's not an automatic fix, but I don't believe there is a truly "automatic" way to fix those lines other than color-correcting the images beforehand. But you still might run into issues that ...

Use the clone tool to paint with the actual skin pixels. All of the tones that you need are already there in the photo. If you need to, use a second copy of the photo (in another window) as the source for the clone tool.

Apparently you can download from Adobe itself: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/optional-file-format-plugins.html It's the one called Electric Image & HSBHSL (Optional Multiplugin)

You could create a script that does this for you. Start extendscript toolkit and run following in Photoshop: var fgc = app.foregroundColor; alert(hsb_to_hsl(fgc.hsb)) // http://stackoverflow.com/a/31851617/1335032 // Note: HSB and HSV is same thing function hsb_to_hsl(color) { var h = color.hue; var s = color.saturation/100; var v = color....
