The PANTONE Web Color Resource Kit is an informative, full-color guide for Web designers who wish to master the rudiments of color and use color successfully in their Web pages and Web graphics. The book provides a brief history of color and color perception, as well as a useful primer on designing with color and understanding such issues as contrast, harmony, and color psychology. The rest of the book covers hands-on Web design. You learn about understanding the differences between Web and screen color, planning Web sites, creating Web graphics, understanding file formats and image maps, and using some of the new technologies such as RealAudio and Java. The book includes screen shots and case studies of Web pages that use color wisely, and descriptions of software programs, such as Adobe Illustrator, that help you create Web graphics. An included color-sample book, the PANTONE Internet Color System Guide, shows you the 216 Internet-safe PANTONE colors along with their CMYK, RGB, and Hexachrome color values and their hexadecimal equivalents. The CD-ROM that comes with the book features a Macintosh utility, the PANTONE Internet Color System software picker for selecting and adding these colors to your graphics. The CD-ROM even has a copy of Adobe Pagemill 2.0, the Web page design program.
