Mechanics of a Color Scheme

Color Schemes may be represented in many ways. Using a tool such as Photoshop or Illustrator, we can create a very interactive color scheme.

Create a color scheme in Photoshop:

  1. Open Photoshop.
  2. Use the implementing-color\Exercises\colorPalette.psd.
  3. Make sure you can see the Color panel and the Swatch panel.
    1. Window >Color.
    2. Window > Swatches.
  4. Create color swatches by mixing colors and saving them as a swatch.
    1. Double-click the color chip. Mix a shade of blue. Click OK.
    2. In the Swatches panel, click the Create New Swatch icon.
    3. Name the color, click OK.
    4. The aqua blue color chip is now in the Swatches panel.
  5. Save as for designers and developers.
    1. File > Save As "MyColorPalette.psd".
    2. Use the paintbrush to create a visual. Make sure to properly label the colors per their use.
