  1. Shades of gray (in the range of white — black) are paradoxically called achromatic (from Greek. α – negative particle + χρώμα-color, i.e. colorless) colors. The paradox is resolved when it becomes clear that” absence of color ” here means, of course, not the absence of color as such, but the absence of a color tone, a specific shade of the spectrum. The brightest achromatic color is white, and the darkest is black.

    When the saturation of any chromatic color is lowered as much as possible, the tone of the hue becomes indistinguishable, and the color changes to achromatic.

  2. From the point of view of color science, as a science, gray does not have the opposite color, because these are properties of only chromatic colors. To properly understand some questions in color, you need to use the right terms, otherwise this is an empty conversation.

  3. The light gray color in the negative will be dark gray, the light shade changes to dark. If you choose a shade exactly between black and white, then such a gray negative will not be at all. However, from my personal experience, I can say that when I tried to find such a “perfect” gray in Photoshop, I did not succeed, because I could not get exactly between black and white

  4. usually in programs, each color scale (red, green, blue) is assigned 255 levels, and if you imagine that the middle is 127 levels of each color, then you can say that in the negative it is 128 levels, but this happens only in such programs.

  5. Strictly speaking, gray is not a color. Or it is any color compressed to the dark part of the spectrum. Just like with black, the opposite of gray is any bright tone.

  6. 1 / bright yellow, for example

    2 / gray has an amazing ability to repeatedly enhance juicy accents

    3 / if in general, then the rainbow is the brightest opposite
