    I am trying to pick specific colors with the color picker, yet the computer will not let me choose them...it comes up with a error icon in the color picker box, and will only show something close. Is there a setting I am missing...OR ????

    Sounds like you're in Photoshop trying to match an image color to a color model that doesn't have or support the color you're trying to match.

    I'm assuming you're getting the "out of gamut triangle."

    What Software?
    What's the color image? RGB, CYMK
    What swatch are you trying to match it to? CYMK, Pantone?

    Sampled colors may not exist in the color gamut/model you're using to match it to.

    Yes...I am getting that frustrating little triangle ! ...lol. Photoshop CS2, CMYK, Pantone & just a nice blue or red. Today we tried CMYK, 96,93,00,00 and no worky. A picture opened in that color, but then we tried to duplicate it with no luck.
