Here’s how RGB works:
- Red: When red light is at its highest intensity and green and blue lights are turned off, the result is a pure red color. Lowering the intensity of red light and increasing the intensity of green and blue lights can create shades of orange and pink.
- Green: When green light is at its highest intensity and red and blue lights are turned off, the result is a pure green color. Adjusting the intensity of green light while varying the intensities of red and blue lights results in a range of greens, from lime green to teal.
- Blue: When blue light is at its highest intensity and red and green lights are turned off, the result is a pure blue color. Modifying the intensity of blue light along with the intensities of red and green lights produces various shades of blue, including indigo and turquoise.
When all three colors of red, green, and blue are at their maximum intensities, they combine to create white light. When all three colors are absent (at zero intensity), the result is Black is the fourth color in the process of four-color printing. The "K" in CMYK. Black adds tonal d... More.
