.TH MAKEU 1
makeu \- make hues and create colors
is a tool for creating colors. It consists of a selectable color field, a color display that doubles as an eyedropper tool, and 7 sliders that change red, green, blue, hue, saturation, value, and alpha.
On the color field, pressing mouse 1 will set the hue, saturation, or value corresponding to that location depending on the graph type. Pressing mouse 2 over the color field will bring up a menu to select a HS graph, SV graph, or HV graph.
The color display shows the color visually and in hexadecimal after multiplying alpha. On the color display, holding mouse 1 and dragging anywhere on the screen (similar to

Pressing mouse 1 on a slider will update the corresponding value. The scroll wheel increments and decrements the values, as well.
