Mac users are presented with a colour picker that allows them to select any 24 bit colour from a colour wheel. On PCs the process is a little more cumbersome. The example below assumes you wish to use an exact colour not given at either of the first two levels of selection.
Step 1: From the customisation dialog drop down, select 'Other'.
Step 2: Now click the 'Define Custom Colors >>' button.
Step 3: Use the colour picker control on the right side to select your colour. Then click the 'Add to Custom Colors' button. Notice in the image below how a yellow custom colour has been created in the 'Custom colors:' section on the left side. Now your custom colour has been created, to select it for use you must click its colour chip in the 'Custom colors:' section on the left side. See in the image below that the selected colour is a Custom colour in contrast to the image above where black is selected from the 'standard' colour set.
Step 4: Click OK back to the customisation dialog and save the Gallery.
