• is it just me thats nt totallly convinced that the colors match exactly ?
• No, the one on the left has a redder tint to it, the one on the right has a bluer tint to it. They aren't the same. Also, on the challenge exercises, the colours that match are not the same as what is in the database as "same", or is that just me?
• I have a problem with the tests they say the color i have is right but it is two different shades! why does this happen?
• It approximates the values.

This means that the hue may be 100, but if yours is between 95-105, then it will count as correct.

Hope that helps!
• I am not sure
• wouldn't the change in pinkness of teddy be related to the saturation level instead of brightness?
• Well, both really. :)
• At in the transcript, you guys wrote "Take a closer looks at these two squares, A and B."
Just wanted to point out the small mistake. After all, everything must be aesthetically pleasing!
• at 32 seconds why does it look like there are 2 swirly neon eyes?
• how is it possible to add a glow to the fire in the movies? is it just a different gradient of color?
• To make something glow, you make the glowing thing a bright, saturated color, the background very dark, and add a halo of that same color receding from the object. Then, contrast will do the rest and make it look like it's glowing! :)
