Chapter 3. Modifying Simple Graphics > Creating Solid Colors: Color Picker

Creating Solid Colors: Color Picker

In addition to creating colors in the Mixer panel, you can create colors in the Color Picker window. This window offers a variety of color pickers. HSV (hue, saturation, and value) and HLS (hue, lightness, and saturation) present the available color space in a large circle that's easier to see than the small color-space bar in the Mixer panel. The CMYK Picker, RGB Picker, and HTML Picker work via color sliders. All the pickers display large swatches for comparing the current color with the new color you are defining.

With one exception, you can access the Color Picker from any fill-color or stroke-color box that pops up the current set of color swatches. (The Fill panel's fill-color box doesn't provide access to the Color Picker.) The following exercise shows one way to reach the Color Picker window and work with one of the color spaces.
