This is going to sound weird, but your color choices made me hungry. XD What did you mean that you work in adobeRGB, by the way?

sorry for the late reply! :thanks: And thank you for the compliment! :chew:
I assume this is set for most programs, but in Clip (my program) you have to manually select the color profile, which changes depending your usage. CMYK is preferred for printing and such. Adobe RGB is a more radiant colour profile and that's what I use when choosing colours :nod: of course, you can change it anytime.
