-The **<​HConst>​-185</​HConst>​** tells Mixxx to subtract 189 from the Hue values all the colors used in my images. This worked for me since all the colors used were at lease Hue=189. **Be careful** when doing this kind of blanket manipulation. **There is [[https://​bugs.launchpad.net/​mixxx/​+bug/​816715|a bug in version 1.9]]** that does not allow Hue values higher than 255! Any Hue changes that result in a number higher than 255 or lower than 0 will "wrap around"​. If you add 102 to cyan (H=189), you should get a nice purple color (H=291), but Mixxx will say, "Hey! That number'​s too high!" and subtract 255, leaving you with orange (H=36). So when using <​HConst>​ in your schemes, **be sure not to have your colors wrap around**.
