Chapter 19. Managing Hardware > Selecting Colors with the Color Picker

Selecting Colors with the Color Picker

The world of color on a computer is a very subjective place to live. For example, you might be using a new Macintosh Studio Display, and someone else might be using a Sony LCD monitor. What this means to you is, a color displayed on your hardware device (monitor) might look slightly different on another computer using a different monitor. In addition, it's possible that two people, owning the same monitor, may have them adjusted differently. While creating consistent color output is a difficult thing, Panther gives you a stable color picking system, which helps to stabilize colors systems. The Macintosh Color Picker is accessed through an application, such as MS Word or Photoshop, or any application that lets you select colors.

Select Colors with the Color Picker

Open an application, such as MS Word.

Select a button, such as text color, and then click More Colors.

Click a palette, and then select a color from the available color profiles:

  • Color Wheel. Drag the scroll bar vertically to adjust the brightness, and then click inside the ball, to select a color.

  • Color Slider. Select a color mixing method from the pop-up, and then drag the sliders to select a color.

  • Color Palettes. Select a pre-designed color palette from the pop-up, and then select the color from the available list.

  • Image Palettes. Displays a spectrum of colors. Click in the spectrum to select a color.

  • Crayons. Select a color from the available crayons.

Click OK to retrieve the color or click the Close button.
