Post  Admin on Tue Oct 06, 2015 10:38 am

You will need to answer the questions AND post an image to receive credit for this.
Contrast checker: http://leaverou.github.io/contrast-ratio/#%23ffffff-on-%23ff0000

1. Put some text over one of your photos.
2. Circle the area with the HIGHEST contrast between the background and the foreground.
3. What is the color code for each of these colors? (Look for 6 numbers/letters in a popup field next to the hashtag).
4. Check the contrast ratio - does it pass the test?
5. Circle the area with the LOWEST contrast between the background and the foreground.
6. What is the color code for each of these colors? (Look for 6 numbers/letters in a popup field next to the hashtag).
7. Check the contrast ratio - does it pass the test?
8. Post up a jpg of the photo with the circled areas, the color values and contrast ratio for the high contrast area, and the color values and contrast ratio for the low contrast areas.

Objectives:
Learning to recognize low contrast problems
Knowing how to check if contrast is a problem
Effectively using design to communicate ideas.

Grading: 2 points possible
1: Successfully identifying the color codes
1: successfully creating a high contrast and low contrast spot

The #855e6b and #dbc08b pass the test but only if the font is over 14 pt. #855e6b and #674b54 don't.

red = Bad (#292728 & #212121)
this has no contrast whatsoever "DON'T USE!!"
yellow = Bad (#24292c & #212121)
his looks like it has contrast but it dosen't "don't use please."
Green! = Good (#847c58 & #212121)
This is usable look at the clear difference "MANTEY APPROVED"
