Tints, Tones and Shades

Tints, Tones and Shades 

These terms are often used inappropriately but they describe fairly simple colour concepts. The important thing to remember is how the colour varies from its original hue. If white is added to a colour, the lighter version is called a "tint". If the colour is made darker by adding black, the result is called a "shade". And if grey is added, each gradation gives you a different "tone."
