Giving something a sciency name always makes it seem worth your while.
So boredom struck hard and fast this evening and I felt my mind wander. I wandered towards the realm of colour and started to think about how colours relate to each other and more importantly how they relate to their desaturated counterpart.
Considering a full spectrum exists in colour and black/white, I thought there must be colours which look the same when desaturated…
So, I had a play around in Photoshop and found some! If you download this picture and put it in Photoshop and desaturate it, it will all look (give or take) the same shade of grey.
I’ve seen somewhere that there’s different ways to make something black and white, all which yield slightly different results, but in Photoshop at least this works!
Colour theory is awesome.
