Subtractive Primary Colors:

These colors can be combined to form the millions of print colors we see in newspapers, books, and magazines. Equal parts of the three primary subtractives yield the color black. To operate the tutorial, press the manual/automatic button to toggle between "automatic" where the color circles randomly bounce around the box or "manual" where they can be moved with a mouse.
