In the Select Color dialog box, you can choose colors using two models: HSB and RGB. You can use the color slider and the color field to choose a color. As you adjust the color using the color field and color slider, the numeric values are adjusted accordingly. The color box to the right of the color slider displays the adjusted color in the top section and the original color in the bottom section.

  • 1. Picked color in the color field
  • 2. Color slider
  • 3. Original color
  • 4. Color values
When you select a color in the color box, it simultaneously displays the numeric values for HSB and RGB, and hexadecimal numbers. This is useful for viewing how the different color models describe a color.

Color field - square area to the left, that shows variations in saturation from left to right and variations in brightness from top to bottom.

The hue is selected in the color slider, running vertically to the right of the color field. However, you can change the operation of the color field and the color slider by selecting a different mode button. When the button to the left of S is selected, saturation is displayed in the color slider and the color field is used to determine hue (left-right) and brightness (top-bottom). Using the Saturation mode makes it easy to change the current foreground color’s saturation with the color slider.
