Pixels and Pigments

This original animation from KET demonstrates how primary colors are sets of colors that can be combined to make a useful range of colors. The two basic ways to produce colors are: (1) using the primary colors of pigments (magenta, cyan, and yellow) to absorb or subtract wavelengths of light, as in mixing dyes, or in printing; or (2) adding various strengths of the primary colors of light (red, green, and blue), as in computer screen pixels.
