  • Color
    Color is the response of the eye to differing wavelengths of radiation within the visible spectrum.
    Hue: Where the color is positioned on the color wheel. Terms such as red, blue-green, and mauve all define the hue of a given color.
    Value: The general lightness or darkness of a color. In general, how close to black or white a given color is.
    Saturation: The intensity, or level of chroma, of a color. The more gray a color has in it, the less chroma it has.

  • ColorHarmonies
    Color harmonies serve to describe the relationships certain colors have to one another, and how they can be combined to create a palette of color.
    Complementary: A complementary relationship is a harmony of two colors on the opposite side of the color wheel. When complementary colors are placed side-by-side they tend to enhance the intensity (chroma) of each other, and when they are blended together they tend to decrease the intensity of each other.
    Analogous: An analogous relationship is a harmony of colors whose hues are adjacent to one another on the color wheel. Analogous colors tend to be families of colors such as blues (blue, blue-violet, blue-green) and yellows (yellow, yellow-orange, yellow-green).
    Triadic: A triadic relationship is a harmony of three colors equidistant from one another on the color wheel. Primary colors and secondary colors are examples of color triads.

  • Color spaces
    Color is typically organized in a hierarchal fashion, based on how colors are mixed. A color space helps to define how the colors are mixed, based on the medium in which the colors are used. There are two different kinds of color spaces:
    Subtractive: A subtractive color space is the traditional color space that most people refer to when they talk about color. It is pigment-based color, as in the mixing of paint. In a subtractive color space, the pigments manipulate the wavelengths that our eyes see. The absence of any pigment produces white, and all pigments blended together produces black.
    Primary colors: Red, yellow, blue
    Secondary colors: Orange, green, violet
    Additive: An additive color space is an electronic color space. It is light-based color, as in the mixing of color on the computer. In an additive color space, light is added to the screen in differing amounts to produce color. The absence of any light is black, the presence of all light, or light at full intensity, is white.
    Primary colors: Red, green, blue
    Secondary colors: Yellow, magenta, cyan

  • Pantone Matching System
    Before you start making your color wheel in Photoshop you need to pick out the colors to be used from the Pantone Matching System swatchbox. From the color samples provided in the swatches pick out the colors needed to make the color wheel.
    Please include: Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary colors.

  • Steps for Making Your Color Wheel
    Step One: Launching Software/Opening file
    Step Two: Changing the Size of Your Picture
    Step Three: Making a Monotone Photo
    Step Four: Saving and Repeat Steps
    Step Five: Setting up the InDesign document
    Step Six: Placing pictures/assembling the Color Wheel

  • Step One: Launching Software/Opening file
    Step one: You will need to launch Photoshop and open the file labeled Mouse. It can be found in the shared all in the links folder.
    Click Here
  • Step Two: Changing the Size of Your Picture
    • You will then make the photo 1x1 inch photo by changing its size.
    • In your menu bar click on Image. In that pop down menu go to Image size and click on it.
    • You will then change the width and height to 1x1. If your constrained proportion is on and it.

    Click Here
  • Step Four: Saving and Repeat Steps
    • After you have changed your photo into a monotone you will need to save the file as a different name.
    • Open up the original file and start the process over again until you have all 12 colors.
    It you need to follow the steps again click here

  • Step Five: Setting up the InDesign Document
    • Open a new document in InDesign that is 8 x 10
    It also should have .25 inch margins on all sides.
    Click Here
  • Step Six: Placing pictures/assembling the Color Wheel
    • One by one you will place each different color photo into the InDesign document arranging them into a circle.
    • Each color should be labeled with its pantone color
    • Print a copy off with crop marks
    • Mount on black paper
    • Glue into notebook with hand outs for grading
