Using Color Themes in Adobe Illustrator CC

Hey there. So color themes and illustrator as under window and if you go down to color things and basically all it is, it starts on create okay. And you can jump across to explore depending on your internet connection, it can take a little time but explores the best option. And what we're doing is we're just looking for colors that, you know, just excite us or get us out of our kind of common, really used colors. I totally use the same colors at the moment, I'm just using all the gradients from gradient, I'll move on, I promise, but at the moment I say I need to pick some new colors for this. Um this guy here, you can see where I got these colors originally. Where is he there there, lindo. Okay, so when I was picking these colors there, I just went to this and I need some different colors and I picked them from here. So a cool thing you can do is say that you decide that you can pick these most popular in the last month or all time. And let's say that you like this one here, you can cl...

ick on it and say I want to add it to my swatches. Okay, and now you can close it down but now I can click on this, make a duplicate and with it selected, I'm going to go into here and go to my switches and there's that kind of group there, so I can actually go make a different color version for you. Yeah, pretty exciting. I love it though. It gets me out of my kind of color gloom bigger version of that is color dot adobe dot com. Let's jump to it here. And when it loads up you can create. Okay, go to explore and if you want to it's quite nice to sign in using your adobe id D. Why would you do that? Because say that I like this color here. It's all eighties. Um I can click on it right. I can say actually you I want to click on edit and I can go through and copy these hex to decimal numbers over or the RGB. But actually what I want to do is going to go back to explore and I want to go to this one that says safe. Okay. And it says I'm gonna stick it in my um my library. Okay. You might have a special library zoo. That's fine for me. And I'm going to click safe. And the cool thing about that is that now, hopefully if I go to illustrator and I click on another version and I go to my libraries and I go to my library. There he is. There he is there. Okay, so you can actually click straight from this. Okay, I can go in here and just start clicking colors, make sure the fills at the front. Okay. You hard. Um let's say you do like these as you use them. They'll be added to your swatches, panel. You can right click them and say add to swatches. So it depends whether you want to use libraries or you like to find them in here. Is that a new group? All right. Why don't I show you that? Just Yeah, just to get you out of your funk for colors, everything is green and gray, like it is for me or gradients at the moment. Um, yeah, just a nice way to do new colors. All right. Let's get into the next color video.
