To select a Web-safe color using the Color palette:

1 Click the Color palette tab, or choose Window > Color to view the Color palette.

2 Choose an option for selecting a Web-safe color:

• Choose Make Ramp Web Safe from the Color palette menu. With this option selected, any color you choose in the Color palette is Web-safe.

• Choose Web Color Sliders from the Color palette menu (Photoshop), or choose any Slider option from the Color palette menu (ImageReady). By default, Web Color Sliders snap to Web-safe colors (indicated by tick marks) when you drag them. (To override Web-safe color selection, Alt-drag (Windows) or Option-drag (Mac OS) the sliders.) If you choose a non-Web color, an alert cube appears above the color ramp on the left side of the Color palette. Click the alert cube to select the closest Web color. In ImageReady, drag around the alert icon to select other close Web colors. (If no alert cube appears, the color you chose is Web-safe.)

Note: In Photoshop, you must choose Web Color Sliders from the Color palette menu to view the Web-safe alert cube. In ImageReady, you can view the alert cube with any color slider option.
