We want to talk, today, about Colour (Space) Systems. There are, at least …
- additive colour systems … used in science … often used to define web colours … red, green and blue are the primary colours
- subtractive colour systems … used by artists (and often the way we learn colours in early school) … often used with regard to printing … red, yellow and blue are the primary colours
- the CMYK colour system … used by printing industry … cyan, magenta, yellow and black are the primary colours
You can read more about the comparisons and a description of these three at Colour Systems – RGB and CYMK.
