I have noticed that whenever I make an area chart, the colors look a little faded. For example, you can see the below charts. In both charts, the hex values of the colors are the same (I am picking from the same palette), but see the difference in presentation.
Expected colors: Properly maintained in bar charts, but faded in the area chart below.
Is there a way to fix this?
By default, the transparency of Area charts are set at 60%, and so the colors look faded. To fix this,
1. Go to the marks card
2. Choose the section pertaining to the measure that you've plotted as area graph
3. Click colors and increase the transparency to 100%
This will give you the actual color.
