0% tolerance !== identical colors

Recommended Posts

I'm a bit disappointed that my initial interpretation of 0% tolerance meant that it would work with colors exactly the color that I wanted, but apparently now I think 0% tolerance means working with colors with < 1% variation.


To demonstrate two close colors:


make a square colored: Red 119, Green 82, Blue 33

make another square colored: Red 120, Green 82, Blue 33


and then use a tool with tolerance on it set to 0%, and it treats the two as an identical color. 


How can I work with exact colors?

Your expectation is correct ... 0 tolerance is supposed to find exact matches only.


Which version of Paint.NET are you using? 3.5.11 or 4.0?


If you're using 3.5.11, please try installing the 4.0 beta and see how it works there. And please report back.
