Gifted children are often tuned in to the aesthetic nature of things at an early age and can appreciate the nuances of color, as well as the way colors are blended, tinted and shaded.
As most of you know, color is light and energy. Color is visible because it reflects, bends, and refracts through all kinds of particles, molecules and objects.
There are a variety of wavelengths that light can be categorized, producing different types of light. Visible wavelengths fall approximately in the to nanometre range and is known as the visible spectrum. Most people are aware of the effects of non-visible light, so it makes sense that visible light would also affect us.
One example of the way light can affect us is a mild form of depression known as Seasonal Affective Disorder SADwhich causes many people suffering during winters. Each color falls into a specific frequency and vibration, which many believe contribute to specific properties that can be used to affect the energy and frequencies within our bodies.

As we mentioned though, many people are skeptical about using color and light for healing or therapy. Does color affect you? Let us know in the comments.We begin with a review of light and color. The concepts presented here-- additive and subtractive color and their respective primaries-- are critically important for image editing.
For more advanced tricks, the paste method can also take a transparency mask as an optional argument. In this mask, the value indicates that the pasted image is opaque in that position (that is, the pasted image should be used as is).
Introduction to Colour Course Description. Colour surrounds us and yet it is a complex subject. We use basic language to describe colour and that is a problem if we are involved in industries where it is important to really determine and communicate colour.
Introduction to Colour Spaces CIE Lab & Lch. This article was first written several years ago in response to our customers who found the concept of 'Lab colour' difficult to understand.
Digital photo stitching for mosaics and panoramas enable the photographer to create photos with higher resolution and/or a wider angle of view than their digital camera or lenses would ordinarily allow—creating more detailed final prints and potentially more dramatic, all-encompassing panoramic perspectives.
