Color-value calculation. What's my most efficient way to come up with the hex values of 30 discrete colors that fade as evenly as possible from 220088 to DDCCFF? [more inside]

Just bought an iPad and realized that Apple products do strange things to the photos on my website, but everything looks fine on a PC. [more inside]

Our classroom lcd projector was left on for too long and the lens was burned, according to our tech. This makes everything it projects have a yellowish tinge. Is there any way to adjust the output on a mac mini to compensate for this? [more inside]

RGB color reference guide. I have just purchased an Epson R1900. I need to match pantone colors & fabric swatches to create artwork. So ideally I would like to print a color reference book of all it's possible RGB colors that I can refer to as a guide to match a color. Is there an "easy" way to do this from either Photoshop or preferably Illustrator? I am a mac user. I did find a multiRIP
software but it seems to be only PC friendly.

I have a new Samsung 1080/120hz hi def LCD yadda yadda yadda...
The cable company provided RGB cable when they hooked up hi def cable. My question is whether or not I should get an HDMI cable. Does it make that much of a difference? It looks pretty darn good right now.

I bought a few cheap, poorly-assembled LED color-changing orb-things
and I'm pretty sure they're the coolest objects I have ever owned. I cracked 'em open
, and damned if I know what is going on in there, but it looks simple/cheap as all hell. Help me figure it out, I'll post a build-log/parts list somewhere, and in short-order we can all be ass-deep in home-made, disarmingly sublime mood-lighting

I'm working with a client who has an existing web logo designed the majority of which is three primary colors in RGB. So left to right it's a vertical stripe of Blue (#0000FF) next to a vertical stripe of Red (#FF0000), next to a vertical stripe of Yellow (#FFFF00). This logo now needs to go on business cards (plastic ones) and so needs to convert from RGB to CMYK in order to be printed. Problem being that the CMYK gamut just doesn't do those eye popping RGB turned up to 11 primaries so conversion leaves a lackluster product and the client on seeing the drafts in PDF with the colors converted is not impressed. Ideas for saving this one? CMYK versions of those colors that contrast in a similar way to their RGB equivalents? Recommendations for printers (online or in NYC) who can do 3.5" x 2", rounded corner, double-sided, plastic business cards with special inks? HELP!

I am designing a card in photoshop, starting out in RGB then converting it to CMYK for print. The RGB looks vibrant and beautiful but the CMYK conversion is lacking contrast and the colors are washed out. Anyone have any ideas on how to maintain the beauty of the RGB image in CMYK?

When 3 CRTs are placed next to each other and are showing exactly the same image, why does it often seem that one is redder, one is greener, and one is bluer? This is something we've seen where I work on multiple hardware configurations and in random order, but always one of each in a three-channel configuration. [more inside]

The primary colours are red,yellow & blue. All other colours can be made from them. Why then do computer screens etc use red, GREEN & blue?

Adobe 1.5.2 (Mac OS 9x). Deleting a swatch... I have an RGB document with a single full-color image and two spots (Blue and Black). I'm converting the document to CMYK for print: I've swapped out the RGB JPG for a CMYK TIF, the Black swatch is fine, and now I want to delete the Blue (RGB) swatch and do a global replace for the Blue (CMYK). But InDesign isn't allowing me to delete it, nor to modify.
Suggestions? Adobe doesn't support 1.5.2 any longer, and their online help has been purged of relevant documents.
