To specify a color using numeric values:

Do one of the following:

• (Photoshop) In CMYK color mode (the mode PostScript printers use), specify each component value as a percentage of cyan, magenta, yellow, and black.

• In RGB color mode (the mode your monitor uses), specify component values from 0 to 255 (0 is black, and 255 is the pure color).

• In HSB color mode, specify saturation and brightness as percentages; specify hue as an angle from 0° to 360° that corresponds to a location on the color wheel. For more information on the color wheel, see "About color modes and models (Photoshop)" on page 86.

• (Photoshop) In Lab mode, enter a lightness value (L) from 0 to 100 and a axis (green to magenta) and b axis (blue to yellow) values from -120 to +120.
