If you double click on the little black/white color thing in the tool bar, it opens the dialog that allows you to set the foreground and background
You enter the colors by typing them in, or using the sliders.
255, 255,255 is white in RGB. 0,0,0 is black in RGB.
The values for 8-bit color (photoshop prefers 8-bit) range from 0 to 255.
Pure blue is 0,0,255
Pure red is 255,0,0
Pure green is 0,255,0
Pure yellow is 255,255,0
And so on.....
If my explanation sucks, you can feel free to u2u me at any time about any photoshop issue, and I'll try my best to help.
