Anybody know how I could show metallic green on an Access form

A good representation of metallic green, blue
or red. Is that simply impossible to see on a
monitor or what?

I think there's a fairly good representation
of metallic green at
http://www.acclaimimages.com/_galler...0118-1245.html

But, it seems to me that trying to display a solid rectangle
in metallic green would be difficult. I think a photograph
like this where the color transitions is capable of giving
the viewer the 'sense' of seeing metallic green on the
monitor.

So, I'm abandoning the search for a metallic green to display on an
access form. Instead, I would like very small bitmap graphics - photos
of cars of different colors - thumbnail sized - that look reasonably
like the real-life color of the actual vehicle. Anybody know where
a database of those could be obtained?

Do you realize you've responded to almost all of your own posts the past
little while, changing the scope of the question each time you do it?

Yeah, I do.
I'm not an intelligent person at all.
I have a very low IQ and a short term memory loss.
I have cerebral palsy, which aggravates the situation.
I am so sorry.

It is sad that you are *totally* missing Tim's point here ...

That's all well and fine as far as the heartstring tugging goes, but the
fact remains is you seem to completely change your question around
shortly after you post. Today and two days ago, I saw something from
you and went - OK, I'll type something out. Usually I do this in fits
and starts while I'm developing, as do other people here. When you
repost within the hour, changing the question, it means I've wasted time
for no reason.

Now I've done this several times before - posted and then realized what
the answer is. But Holy crap, man...

I guess we've all changed the scope of this post here.

Anybody care to take a stab at the metallic green question?

You may find links and pics (or you could even sign up and ask) on any
car enthusiast forum, e.g. www.clubgti.com, www.bmwland.co.uk.

Or go to the manufacturer's website, e.g. www.ford.com, they usually
have pics of their cars there.

Photographers and clip-art folks - that's where I'm
concentrating now. Am getting some feedback.
Have not arrived at a sol'n yet.

The only way, it seems, to represent the 'fancier' shades
and lustres will be photos. So I'm seeking a database
of vehicle pictures finished in the 50 most popular
colors/finishes. That shouldn't be too hard.
