The colour magenta[edit]

At the very base of the page, under the "shades of violet section" I think the colour magenta has been given the wrong colour tab - it is certainly a different colour than the magenta under the "shades of red" and "shades of pink" sections, I think that it may be fuschia, rather than magenta. I'm not really sure how to fix it, or if I'm right... Does anyone else see a difference? ::

The trouble is that there are several magentas. Fuchsia is also known as magenta or "electric magenta". Whatever set of editors did the shades templates wasn't always being consistent. Here's a snippet of the shades of red to illustrate the alt names and numbers (the first four on the second row).
|-
| width="5%" style="font-size:90%;" | [[Fuchsia (color)|Fuchsia]]
| width="5%" style="font-size:90%;" | [[Girlsnberry]]
| width="5%" style="font-size:90%;" | [[Fuchsia (color)|Hollywood Cerise]]
| width="5%" style="font-size:90%;" | [[Magenta]]

|-
|style="background:#FF00FF; "| <!-- Electric Magenta (Fuchsia) -->
|style="background:#D15C5C; "| <!-- Girlsnberry -->
|style="background:#F400A1; "| <!-- Hollywood Cerise   -->
|style="background:#FF0090; "| <!-- Process (Printer's) Magenta -->

Go to template:Shades of pink or template:Shades of violet and edit to see the others. It's not obvious what would be the right fix. Dicklyon 00:13, 20 June 2007 (UTC)


Problem with "Japanese pink"[edit]

On the page Pink there is the link to this article to the section name "Japanese Pink", but this article has not got such section. —Preceding unsigned comment added by TomaszHolband (talkcontribs) 17:07, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Same thing with "American Rose". There is a link to this article from the Shades of Red page but there's no entry here.MultK (talk) 13:17, 4 July 2011 (UTC)

Use of an image[edit]

The first thing to notice on this page is how the image breaks the layout. Contents-box appears on the right hand side an looks abrupt. Is the image needed at all to convey the idea of a color? Most color-pages work fine without a tangible picture to the origin of the word. There could be a link to a wikipedia article about roses or history of color or whatever. I suggest getting rid of the image for the sake of layout. RedJimi (talk) 17:06, 1 November 2011 (UTC)
