The colour RGB(205,205,13)
« on: November 29, 2017, 08:26:54 AM »

i'm delighted to discover that these are the RGB coordinates of the colour officially known in French as "caca d'oie" (goose shit).

As a further matter of importance, one now understands the appeal, in France, of franglais.

I wonder what the co-ords of that Renault and Peugeot red that seems to live between cherry and electric apple?

Thank you for that important information, Graham.

Can someone explain why I can't find any mention of "caca d'oie" on any slider in either PS or LR?
I guess I need to send Adobe a feature request.

A more appealing colour than caca-vert d'un bébé.

There was a Hillman Imp made in babyshit green during the 60s; today, there is one of those strange Citroën Cactus (?) semi-car things that colour. I believe that it's a security device - an anti-theft ploy.

Let's hope they never produce scented paint for cars.

I believe you need the French version for that.  The French really know their ca-ca.
