Mixing the Colours

If you want to modify a series of colour at once to blend a tint in them or offset their RGBA values, you can use the Tint panel. The Tint panel is quite useful when creating palette styles such as night and day styles.

To mix colours:

1. In the palette list, select the palette to offset or blend colours in it.

2. In the Colour View menu, select Palettes > Tint Panel.

The Blend/Offset Tint panel opens.

3. Select one or more colours to be modified in the colour list. To select all your colours, press [Ctrl] + [A] (Windows/Linux) or [⌘] + [A] (Mac OS X).

4. Check Preview.

5. Offset, Blend or Mix the selected colours.

Offset

Use this option to simply offset the selected colours by the adjustments made using the HSB and RGB sliders. Use the Amount slider to adjust the degree of offset. Use the Alpha slider to adjust the opacity of the selected colour.

Blend

Use this option to blend the selected colours with the colour swatch in the top right corner. Use the Amount slider to adjust the degree of blend. A blend of 100% would turn the selected colours into the same colour as the swatch. Adjusting the HSB and RGB sliders affect the swatch colour, which in turn affects the selected colours on the left. Use the Alpha slider to adjust the opacity of the swatch.

Mixer

Select a Base and Tint colour to form a third colour swatch. Use the slider just beneath to mix the Base and Tint colours by different amounts. This will affect the mixed swatch whether it is selected or not. Select either the Tint or Base swatch and use the HSB and RGB sliders to adjust its colour. This will affect the mixed swatch colour, which in turn affects the selected colours on the left.

6. Click on the Apply button.
7. Close the Tint Offset/Blend Panel window.
