Flashcards in Color Theory Deck (142)
An individual's perception of numbers and letters associated with that experience of colors
Made up of numerous waves or impulses each having different dimensions of wave lengths
White light or Daylight
Process of mixing pigments together, such as we see paintings; when these pigments are blended, more light is absorbed and less is reflected
The process of mixing colored light, such as in theatrical lighting or television
Based on the viewer's reaction to colors when they are placed next to each other
3 different ways a user can mix the colors of the light display
1. CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Key)
2. RGB (Red, Green, Blue)
3. HSV (Hue, Saturation, Value) or HSL (Hue, Saturation, Lightness)
Range of colors reproduced in color mode
It is the setting or correcting of a measuring device or base level, usually by adjusting it to match or conform to a deniably known and unvarying measure
Standardized color reproduction system; by standardizing the colors, different manufacturers in different locations can all refer to it to make sure colors match without direct contact with one another
Pantone Color Matching System
3 dimensions of color; gives identity to the color
Refers to the undiluted colors; it refers to the true colors of the spectrum

All other colors with hues are __________ colors.
Colors that are higher in value (lighter), lower in saturation, cooler in hue
Colors that are lower in value (darker), highly saturated, and warmer in hue
The __________ in an object enable it to absorb some light waves and reflect the others
What we actually see as color is called __________. When an object is hit with light rays, the object absorbs certain waves and reflects others, this determines the __________.
