Lesson 1. Bitmap Editing > Using the Info Panel

Using the Info Panel

When you look at the gray background of the bitmap image, all the gray pixels appear to be similar in color. There is actually a wide variety of colors. To see the difference in the colors, you can use the Info panel.

1.
Choose Window > Info.

Move the pointer around the gray background of the image and notice the change of the values in the Info panel. The Info panel displays the color and position of the pixel directly below the mouse pointer.

2.
Click the Options menu on the Info panel and then select HSB from the menu.

The Options menu is located on the right side of all panels. This menu contains options specific to that panel. On the Info panel, you can view the hexadecimal, RGB (red, green, blue), CMY (cyan, magenta, yellow), and HSB (hue, saturation, and brightness) values of colors. When you view the HSB values, you can see the differences in gray colors that on your screen appear to be the same.
