Following on from the PagePlus Colour Wheel resource page that provides a colour wheel to base scheme colours on, this provides a resource for Serif WebPlus, Serif DrawPlus and earlier versions Serif PagePlus (prior to PagePlus X2). This is purely an RGB Colour Wheel. Colour wheels help to define relationships between colours.
The colours have been created ‘by-the-numbers’, so should work with all RGB based colour schemes to give a uniform result. If monitors or printers are not colour calibrated, there will be slight differences in colour cast.
1) Left Click on the relevant link to open up each of the Colour Wheels in a new popup window (if for some reason the image does not open, or a blank gif displays instead of the colour wheel, please contact me here, and I will email them to the address you give).
2) Right click the colour wheel that has just opened up in the new window, choosing the ‘Save Image As’ option.
3) Navigate to where on your PC you would like to save the image, I suggest using the default name.
4) Open up WebPlus, DrawPlus or the pre X2 PagePlus. To import the colour wheel image Go to ‘Insert’ on the menu bar, choosing ‘Picture’ then ‘From File’, locate where the colour wheel was downloaded to in step 3 and click anywhere on the page or pastboard.
5) Drag the colour wheel across and into the ‘My Designs’ section of the ‘Gallery’ tab. This will create a copy of the wheel that is always available from now on.
6) Give the new colour wheel in My Design a name in the popup window (I suggest using the format ‘RGB Tint Colour Wheel’). We will be able to see that it is a colour wheel, putting RGB first followed by Tint or Shade will help to differentiate even if the words ‘Colour Wheel’ are obscured.
Now, whenever we want to use them to make up a particular colour scheme, it's quite simply a case of dragging either or both of RGB versions onto the pasteboard; selecting the colour picker on the colour tab, dragging it to the relevant colour and setting our swatch.
Each change is a 20% difference in shade or tint.
