Wrong because yellow is not a primary colour if blue and red are.

What Dino said. The first picture shows the two combinations of primary colours (red/green/blue for additive, cyan/magenta/yellow for subtractive). Red/yellow/blue is neither additive nor subtractive; if you were to combine those three colours of light, you'd get a light red rather than white; and if you were to combine those three colours of paint, you'd get a muddy brown instead of black.

I've learned some things I didn't know about colors from this thread. And Dino was right, I was wrong.

Heh. I saw that too. I looked at the picture and was like "Red, yes. Blue, also yes. But Yellow? That's no primary. That's the wrong colour theory we talked about that everybody gets taught in the first few years of school. :mrgreen:
