are you guys in today's video? Flexi starter. We're gonna be looking at applying colours with your colour mixer to. But before that, let's have a quick intro first. Yes, so today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za y. We make sure that easy to watch problem solving videos, and we have daily updates. Otherwise, back in the programme here now, just a reminder. There's a miniseries on working with colours and switch tables. So in today's video, we're gonna be looking at applying colours using the colour mixer. And then we have covered quite a few different topics already, which I will leave relevant links and descriptions. You can actually follow along now when it comes to the actual, um, locating of the colour mixer. Yeah, to navigate you to your top two bar you stand up to. What should I say? And you'll see we've got this little artist palette here, so if we harbour, you can see it's this colour mixer and the shortcut for him if we had to press em will bring up a colour mixer. Now, if you change these colours and stuff, you'll see them. Nothing will really happen other than on your default colours, you're on the bottom of right will be changing. So this is one way. You can also try such a default. But in order to have an effective shape, obviously we almost needed selected. So with our selection to enabled on our main toolbar here on the right or the left, Sorry, Uh, there's a we select the shape. Now, if we had em or click on that little colour palette or bring up our mixer And now from the mixer, we have a few different options here. First of all, we've got the current colour that it is, or even if you change it, this will also change. Then next to that, we've got the modes so we can switch between three different modes. I'll be rgb saying Okay, we've covered most of us already, and then under that, we've got the parameters on the values you can set for these modes. As you can see, RGB can set the red, green and blue, which which is something like C m k. It will be the values for blows. And under all of these, we have a new bar just rather handy, so we can quickly just them dragon getting your youth. And, as you can see, it updated. Live on our actual design, Matt as well or design area. Okay, now, as you as you can see, is relevant for all. But if you had to take something like s H V s, you'll see we actually have a you by default here so you can put this one you currently you don't have to set the bottom you, but it is handy that you can actually set to you for all of them. So it makes just for quick. I'm changing, especially RGB. If you're not too familiar with how to set the red, green and blue visually, you can quickly just go here and grab you, and then it will sort it out for you. And then, uh, let's say you get a colour and you do like it. You can always just click like I've shown before in the previous videos and click on this little blocks, drag it to your swatch table, and then when you leave it there, it ultimately pop it in free. So that is a quick way that you can actually add swatches. But one thing you should keep in mind with the colour mixer. Let's say we've got multiple items selected, and then we had to our mixer tool. Now, as soon as we change the colour year, it's gonna ultimately change it for both objects or both shapes. So just keep that in mind. It can be a pro and a con. So the pro is you can make quick changes to multiple items and the communists, and you know, you're gonna change the colour of all of them. So if you have a logo or something like this, for instance, and then let me select that you can go to a colour going to kind of mess up your whole design. So definitely keep that in mind. Otherwise, that is it. On applying colours using the colour mixer we had here to softwaretraining.co.za Seattle today you guys will know that we've got a variety of different Softwares video cover and also you can isolate just search on the top of the right.
