Hex colors are not

I'm not sure what I did, but my colors are not correct. I'm trying to use HEX for Clemson Tiger orange. I copied the value of the # and pasted into Photoshop (something I do all the time). I had a red.


Here's what it should be:


No indication as to what I did to make a difference. Help!


Hexadecimal numbers are not managed somehow to color. The number can mean anything depending on the context. The same number hexadecimal, represented in different color spaces, result in very different colors.

In these days of modern color management there is no good reason to worry about arbitrary hexadecimal values. It's obsolete way. Get used to working with the RGB values in the color spaces defined instead, which is predictable and absolute.

Before color management, the only reasonable thing near a colorspace of "reference" is an average CRT monitor. Then, hexadecimal numbers makes sense. But not now.

  • Re: Satellite P300 - display colors are not displayed correctly

    A few months ago appeared a strange problem with my laptop screen as you can see in this video made by me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjpsXNB6prc

    I tried to tilt the cover but without results. Sometimes it comes back normal picture all of a sudden. If I close the lid when I stopped the laptop, when the next market problem appears.

    With the help of Corel, I noticed that the RGB colors are not displayed correctly. I connected the laptop to a VGA monitor and the image was normal.

    I would like to know what the problem is so that I am able to fix it myself.

    Thank you.

    Hey Buddy,

    It of great that you've made a video of your problem, most other users don t do that, but it makes history. :)

    In any case, it is really hard to say what part is causing this problem. Either it's internal display itself or graphics card. Easiest way to check this is connect an external monitor and check what is happening.

    So if it was a normal external VGA monitor image it seems to be the graphics card. This means that the motherboard must be replaced and this can be done from an authorized service provider. Then get in touch with the guy and ask for help.

  • Colors are not import D810


    My camera is a Nikon D810, I Lightroom 6.6 (Windows 10).

    Whenever I import my new photos in Lightroom, they look good in the library. As soon as I click on to develop the change of my picture, the colors are not and pictures are too dark. The color on my camera temperature is 5561 K, but in Lightroom, it is suddenly 5950 K, although the World Bank said as a shot. Procesversion 2012, the profile is Adobe Standard.

    I have reinstalled Lightroom, cleaned all my settings. I don't know what the problem, if I did something wrong, if are lot of parameters. Who can help me?

    Color-temperature numbers depend on the profile of the camera, which there are several, so if they are a bit out there is nothing to worry about.  What is more important than the number is so neutral are always neutral or not.

    If your photos are displayed dark then it is probably because you have active D-Lighting or something similar is activated in your camera where you pull deliberately dark then illuminates the shadows digitally before creating the Nikon-made in JPG or built-in preview.

    Turn off all special modes that LR has just begun with the raw data from the sensor and knows nothing of these other modes of Nikon that apply ONLY to treatment of Nikon that takes place behind closed doors or in the Nikon software, not the Adobe software.

  • Quick export in PNG - colors are not true to the image

    When I user Quick Export in PNG in Photoshop CC 2015, the colors are not the same as when I export using save for Web (Legacy).

    Fast PNG

    Quick export as PNG.png

    Save for web (legacy)


    Any ideas why this happens?

    Windows user 7. I can provide more information if I know what you need to know.

    The new export module has no management colors and a whole bunch of other essential functions.

    It is a work in progress, and I have no idea why they were in such a rush to ship it. Use save for Web.

    That said, it seems as if the original is ProPhoto - if it comes to the web, you must convert to sRGB. There should not be this much of a difference.

  • my screen colors are not good Please HELP

    on the settings of the monitor in the color tab, I can see that the numerical value of the green color is 0 if im not able to adapt to it. the red and blue are ok their numeric values are 255 so everything seems to have a reddish tone

    Thank you!

    Hello peruviancutiepie,

    The problem may be related to your monitor. This wouldn't have anything to do with your settings in Windows. You will need to contact the manufacturer of your computer to help you solve this problem. This may also be related to a faulty monitor. Your best point of contact for this problem would be to contact the manufacturer of your computer.

  • In Premiere Pro and video export colors are not the same, why?


    So, I filed a clip in speedgrade and exported from Premiere Pro.

    Strangely when I play the video with vlc it does not show the colors I had in Premiere Pro.

    Now, when I import this clip in AE it seems identical to SpeedGrade and Premiere Pro.

    After have exported them sequelae with and without the color profile converter efffect set to sRGB, as well as with and without the workspace defined as srgb, they all look the same, off the coast of color

    Did I miss a step?

    VLC is up to date?

  • CS3 - is to remove the colors are not used in documents in a book

    Hello, I have a big problem...

    I have a book composed of about 120 documents Indesign InDesign.

    My question: did you know that a script that can delete the unused nuances in all the documents making up a book rather than document by document (120 documents) by the color chart menu.

    Thank you

    Not a requirement that I met earlier, but it seems too hard.

    for (var i = 0; i)
    var currentDoc = app.open (app.books [0] .bookContents [i] .fullName, true);
    for (var j = currentDoc.unusedSwatches.length; j > 0; j-)
    currentDoc.unusedSwatches [j - 1] .remove ();
    currentDoc.close (SaveOptions.YES);


    This script assumes that you have your one (and only one!) Book to the screen. It opens all documents in a book, removes the nuances and it closes.

    There has always been disagreements about what makes a "unused" shade, and I guess that it works the same as it does in the UI - it removes what is possible and leave the rest.

  • Colors do not convert properly to HAVE in Photoshop

    Using Adobe Creative Cloud... When you import an .ai file in Photoshop, colors are not important in exactly... particularly gray.

    Source .ai file is in RGB color space. Problem persists without worrying so important in sRBG or RGB color in Photoshop...

    The example below is only the shades of gray, but the file is RGB color... for some reason, don't seem to have this problem with other tones of colors, just grey in color space.

    After fixing, that's what it looks like an imported/rasterized in Photoshop > >

    Screen Shot 2016-02-21 at 7.05.18 PM.png

    What happens here? Clearly these gray are not translated correctly, and again, it should be the same hex code.

    I had this problem for over a year with various designs... If it was a temporary problem with some version of the Adobe Creative Cloud, I guess it would have been fixed now

    What the OP wrong, is define the nuances as a value of K, that is in grayscale.

    Turns on AI does not manage to properly color to grayscale, where shifting gray values when you go to Photoshop, what color is manage grayscale. RGB and CMYK, both work fine.

    Basically, that's all.

    So this is a problem of Illustrator; not a problem in Photoshop. Maybe the team thought the color management was unnecessary with shades of gray, since there is no color in it...

  • All-in-one Photosmart HP 3310: colors may not print correctly on A4 photo paper.

    My HP 3310 printer gave me great prints for many years, but during the last 12 months, 210 x 297 mm prints threw a desaturated look and brightness has dulled as well. My photos 10 x 15 cm print perfectly.

    I did all the recommended suggestions, cleaning of the print head, aligning the printer even restore to factory default to no effect.

    I use Spyder Pro 5 to ensure that I have the exact colors on my screen.

    I printed via the printer settings and also the settings of Photoshop.

    At the present time, all my photos contest must be overexposed and strongly saturated for previously appreciated results.

    I only use HP photo papers and real HP363 inks.

    I hope someone can put an end to my frustration.
