Sorry about a mistake. ColorData[_, "Images"] should read ColorData[_, "Image"]. Also, ColorData[_, "Panel"] will bring an interactive tool, which will return RGB values directly by clicking swatches. Also, the color names should be given as a string. You can find more about the ColorData via our documentation: http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/ColorData.html Yu-Sung Chang Kernel Technology Wolfram Research, Inc.
