Crazy Man Dan Posted September 1, 2005 Share Posted September 1, 2005 Hey there! I have something for you... I was working on that gradient tutorial I've been mentioning, and I noticed another little weird thing. I had used the Color Picker to select a color, but the position on the color wheel did not change to reflect the change in color. So I tested it a little more. When I use the Color Picker to select a color when a color is selected on the wheel, the position doesn't change on the wheel. If I pick a transparent spot when there is a color selected on the wheel, the marker on the wheel moves to the center and the opacity is set to 0, just like it should be. If I select a transparent spot, then select a color, the position marker moves to that color on the wheel. However, once that color is selected, no matter how many times I selected one of the colors in my image, the marker on the wheel will not move again until I select another transparent pixel. So, I got curious. I dropped the opacity on one of the layers to see if it had to do with the opacity level, since it went fine when changing between 255-0 and 0-255, but not from 255-255. But this rendered the same result. Now, all this time, I'd been working with layers of red, orange, and yellow (FF0000, FF8800, F6FF00). So I threw in a blue layer just for the sake of testing. The marker on the wheel moves just fine when switching from red/orange/yellow to blue and when switching from blue back to red/orange/yellow, but not when switching between red-orange-yellow. Another strange thing: when getting the hex codes for up there, I opened up the "More" panel of the colors window to access the text box. When I selected one of the colors (red/orange/yellow), the hex code changed appropriately, but the marker did not. But when I hit [Ctrl]+c to copy the hex value, the marker then moved to the appropriate position. I know, I'm terrible at explaining things... I hope I didn't confuse you too much. If you need further explanation, just let me know.
