Chapter 5. Color, in Theory and in Practice > Artwork, Imagery, and Color

Artwork, Imagery, and Color

An image in Photoshop is color. Whether the image is in bright, vivid colors, various shades of gray, or even just black and white, it doesn't exist without color. At its heart, Photoshop is about assigning the correct color to each pixel.

Color is equally critical in Illustrator images. Without color, Illustrator has only invisible paths. A path is an abstract concept, conveying no information to the viewer, until the application of a fill and/or a stroke of color. It's color that produces the image, attracts the attention, and conveys the message. Virtually everything done in Illustrator is about putting color in the correct places to create an image.
