Creating Custom Colors
Flash allows you to edit and create new colors for strokes and fills in several ways in the Color Mixer panel. You can alter a color's RGB values (assigning it different levels of Red, Green or Blue), Hue, Saturation, Brightness, and Alpha (transparency). You can accomplish this by using sliders, dragging on a color-space, or entering a numeric value that corresponds to a specific color. In each case you can save your color into the palette for easy access.
Create a Custom Color by Entering a Value
Open or expand the Color Mixer panel.
Enter values between 0 and 255 in the RGB numeric entry boxes.
Enter an alpha value between 0 and 100.
Click the Options button in the panel, and then click Add Swatch.
Did You Know?
You can alter the RGB values with the sliders located to the right of the numeric entry boxes. Click the small triangles, and then drag the sliders that appear. Additionally, you can drag the cursor over the Color space bar at the bottom of the Color Mixer panel to change the color interactively.
Create a Custom Color with the Color Picker
Click a Stroke or Fill color box in the Toolbar or the Property Inspector.
Click the Color Wheel button to the far right of the palette.
Click a color from one of the available pickers (Mac) or from the Color Window (Win).
