  • numbers for gold?

    I am looking to put some gold coloring on a title, and need the RGB numbers for the color. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Re: numbers for gold?

    You could try sampling some images from a google search? Or have a look at the numbers quoted Here.

    The big problem is that all these single RGB numbers will give you a flat dull yellow. So if you want to make the title look gold you are going to have to modify the title with some shading showing reflectivity of gold.

    Look Here as a starting point?

        Isnt gold all about reflections of light? Just curious how the pros do it, because everytime i retouch gold i more less leave (some hue and saturation corrections) the original colour and just do a lot of dnb on it.

          I was able to get a really shiny gold, or any sort of metallic finish, using "layer styles".
          Search the internet, lots there!
