A great way to select your colors in Photoshop is by using the color picker dialogue box. If you go down near the bottom of your toolbox in Photoshop, you’ll see that you have two colors here. Here the top one being your foreground color and the bottom one being your background color. Go ahead and double click on the one that you want to change and you’re going to get your color picker dialogue box. The first thing I like to do is to go over to the color slider and adjust the slider to get the shade that I want and I am looking enough for a—let’s look for an orange color right here. So I’m going to go ahead and bring it down here.
Now you can go over to color field and I can go ahead and I could click to find exactly the shade that I want. And you could see over here in my preview, this is the current color that I have set as my foreground and this is the new color that I’m selecting in this changes as I go along and I select this.
Now I could also change the numeric values to get the exact color that I want. H S B stands for hue, saturation and brightness, so you can increase or decrease those to vary the amounts of those. We have R G B which is your red, green and blue and those are the just amount of colors that’s in the color that you’ve chosen. So you could see I have a lot of red in here, some green and very little blue. And I could change to this, I could increase if I want it and that’s going to change the shade just a little bit.
I have LAB over here and this is for lightness for your red, green access and for your blue, yellow access. You also have down here. You have cyan, magenta, yellow and black colors. So you can change all of those to get the exact color that you want. You also have the option down here of entering you hexadecimal value and you could go ahead and put that in if you know what you want. Go ahead and click OK and then you can see here that you’ve changed your foreground color. You can go ahead and you can do the same thing to the background color if you’d like. Go ahead and click OK.
And now you have both your foreground and your background color set. So when you go and you add your next component into Photoshop, just go ahead and use these colors.
