Thanks for writing...

Carol was speaking of our review and critique of "The Warf" which can be found at the basic premise of the review was to replace blues and greens with warmer colors. I sent Carol the attached file which illustrates the area of color which might have been used. I do not remember, and since the images were reduced to JPG files, the color read-out is not reliable.
When working with web colors you've got to be careful to get the correct mix and hex code -- especially when attempting to match graphic color with tag-called hex colors in the HTML. Always be sure to 'test' the colors too... your painting program may come up with colors that are totally different in hex code.

And that's that. We invite you to stop in and enjoy Mr. Pixelsmith's color columns in DTG, or in his directory in the WebDesign & Review department at the Design Center. If you have questions about color, just let us know.
