I'm working on some colour variations dialing in colours in hsb. However, when I click again on an object I just coloured I noticed that the hsb values are different than originally dialed in. It's also happening in Illustrator but less. How do I get rid of that? I'm working in CS4 latest version.
Make sure that snap to web safe is turned off in the color picker.
Thanks Jim. But even then HSB remains jumpy. Pity there's no Lab option in FW.
Check your eye dropper sampling area as well - you can choose between 1, 3x3 and 5x5 pixels. That said, I created a rectangle with an HSB color and it was off by 1 in the Hue. Saturation and Brightness matched, though.
