Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Color modes, part of Photoshop CS6 for Photographers Quick Start.
I think this lesson is going to be especially easy. …Because basically, I'm going to tell you that you don't need to worry about something. …And that's always nice, isn't it? You probably already know that you're …working on your images in Photoshop as RGB images. …And that means red, green, and blue. And the reason for that is that red green …and blue are the primary colors for emitted light. …It's also the colors that our camera captures in most cases. …We can look on the Channels panel for example and see where the red light is in …the image. Where the green light is in the image, …and where the blue light is in the image. Where there is lots of light of all three …colors, of course we get white or nearly white.…
And where there's very little light of all three colors we get black, or nearly black. …But all three of those colors mix to create all of the colors we're able to …see or create in Photoshop. In some cases you ofcourse you might not …be working with an RGB image, but frankly that's not going to be very often. …
