Illustrator Tip of the Day

For those of us Illustrator/InDesign users out there, how many times have we said, "I like that color, I just need it a bit lighter." There are two easy ways to do this. One is to switch your pallet to HSL. The L in HSL stands for Lightness, just drag that in the desired direction. But if you want to be really cool and you're using RGB or CMYK like every other person on the planet, you can move all three or four sliders at once if you hold down shift and drag one of the sliders. This is especially fun to do if another designer is looking over your shoulder cause they won't have a clue how you did that, unless, of course, they read Pete & Jay's Tip O Da Day.

Update: This does not work in Photoshop. Go figure.

Thanks to Mac Design for today's tip.
