Using Color Modes In Adobe InDesign CC

Hey there in this video, we're going to look at color modes and in design. What are color modes basically? It's how these colors interact with the background colors. So this black here isn't just transparent. Okay, It's doing something a little nicer with the background. You can see this orange box here or this orange circle has a nice kind of interaction with the background as well. And these are called color modes. Let's go and look at how to make those. Now. Color modes are kind of an advanced thing, mostly done in Photoshop, but you can do it here in design and I'll show you what they do. Let's grab the ellipse tool. Okay? And I'm going to click hold and drag out a bigger lips if you hold shift while you're dragging it. Um it makes a perfect circle if you hold down the option key on a Mac as well. So shift an option. If you're on a pc, it's shift and you can drag from the center. That can be kind of handy. Okay, so I'm going to drag this up here and I'm gonna put it, I'm just makin...

g it kind of a background thing. I'm going to send it to all the way to the back and then move it in so it's just above my image there. Now, I'm going to pick one of the colors, I'm gonna pick this orange here and color modes are in effects. Okay? And we're gonna go to transparency. That's the one that I use the most. You can go to object affects the long way and go to transparency. It doesn't matter. Okay, you get to the same place and what we're looking for is this one here called blending modes? Normal is what it is by default was going to look at some of these other options in here. Multiply often gives us kind of the thing we're looking for and that's what I'm looking for. Just some sort of like connection with the background because if you just go to normal and lower the opacity gets kind of like this washed out kind of color. Okay, Whereas if you use one of these blending modes, you can get some more interesting connections with that background color. Okay, now multiply is not the only one. Go through the range and see what you might want to do. Okay, you can see there's some interesting effects. So I'm just doing it because I yeah, I want a different effect. I'm going to go to hard light. Let's go crazy. Okay, so that is blending modes. We'll use it quite a bit in this course. And the other thing I wanna do is this thing here, maybe this image is just a bit too bright. So I'm gonna grab the rectangle tool and I'm gonna use another color mode and the one I use the most is multiplied. So I'm gonna put a big rectangle over the top of this. I'm gonna fill it with black, which is the top here, click on black And I'm going to send it to the back again, bring it forward one. Okay, so it's just above my image and I'm going to go back to that transparency mode. Cool. And we're gonna use multiply and I'm going to lower the opacity down a little bit so we get this kind of like nice, I don't know, darkening the background. That's all I'm doing. Alright. That's it for color modes. Let's look at the next color trick.
