Get 50% tint of a rgb colour in photoshop


I have an rgb colour provided by design guidelines. I am allowed to use a 50% tint of it.
Can someone please advise how I can get this colour in photoshop.

When design guidelines say that you can use a tint, they are referring to a tint over white.

If you start with a white background in an RGB file, add a layer over it and fill that layer with your RGB color, you will have a 100% tint.

If you then change the opacity of that layer to 50%, you then have a 50% tint.

You can then use the eyedropper tool and sample that 50% tint and it will tell you what the RGB equivalent is.

That is to say, if you sample this lighter color, you will now get a new RGB value that you can paint at 100% and it will be the same color as a 50% tint of your original color (over white)
