Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with color, part of iBooks Author for Teachers: The Basics.
It's true that you can make a fully functioning iBooks Author project in just…black and white, but why not take advantage of the opportunity to make your…projects much more engaging with the good use of color.…And there are plenty of options for sampling, mixing, saving, and applying colors…using the Colors window.…Let's see how it works.…Let's start by taking a look at how to create and save colors in iBooks Author.…First we need to open the Colors window, which you can get at via the toolbar or…by pressing the keyboard shortcut Command+Shift+C. The Colors window gives you…several ways of mixing colors.…
First we have a color wheel and there is a slider alongside where you can…adjust the brightness.…Clicking and dragging around inside the wheel changes the hue.…To adjust the saturation, you move between the outer edge and the center.…So I can have a very saturated green, or a grayish green.…And we have a slider underneath the wheel to adjust the Opacity if you want to…create a color that you can see through to what's beneath it.…
