Hi cathyd, I'm a mac user too... here's part of the puzzle. I put the great Oil Paints .col file in the 'Colors' folder under Application Support/Art Rage 2/Resources. Then I brought up the 'Color Samples' window (hit the 'S' key). It has a little triangle menu of its own in its upper-left-hand corner. Click that, choose 'Load Colors...' and it shows the 'Colors' folder mentioned above.
WARNING: ArtRage can cause serious loss of time, and excessive smiling! Use with care! Frequently!
