Hue, in the context of colour and printing, refers to the dominant colour family of a specific colour.

It is one of the main properties of a colour, along with its saturation and brightness.

Hues are the basic colours on the colour wheel - red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet - and the variations of these.

Adjustments in hue can help produce a vast array of colours for printing.
