triadic colors. You can change the background color of the harmonious color area to
whichever color you like, to see how the harmonious colors look like on different

Color sliders for RGB, HSB and CMYK make easy work of modifying your

mode and the color ranges mode. These methods help you to better control
your color values. You can see all the brightness and saturation of any hue

color wheel, as well as adjust brightness and saturation until you find the
color you like. Selecting that color returns you to ColorDabbler and makes
that color the current color
