In this tab you may also adjust button images colors to a certain degree. You may either pick one of predefined color sets from the Preset drop down list or adjust colors to a finer degree using the color adjustment controls below. The fine color adjustment is achieved by changing four color parameters: Hue, Saturation, Brightness, and Contrast. By moving parameter sliders you can adjust button colors to a certain degree. The value displayed in Color Adjustment field can be used as a value for the ColorAdjustment property of Skin object, ColorAdjustment option of Enhanced Batch Processing or as arguments for adjustToolbarColor function of Print2Flash Document API to make the toolbar appear the same way programmatically as you see it in preview. Note that color adjustment is available only when a document is targeted for Flash Player 8 or a higher version.

When this option is set, the colors you have chosen are modified according to color adjustments settings.
