Help with Creating Colors

Not sure which colors to mix to create an olive color? Look to the sliders, Luke. If you look in the Color palette, the sliders appear in color. That’s not just for looks—those sliders show you exactly where to drag to get the color you want. If you’re in CMYK and the sliders look black, lower the black amount until you can start to see some color. If you don’t see olive there, drag the top slider to the left and look at the color sliders—is it closer or farther away from olive? In just a few seconds of experimenting, you’ll probably see just which sliders you need to drag where. (Here’s a hint—to get to olive, start with just the green slider, then add a little red.)
