Can HTML color names be used to define a color in Adobe Photoshop? How?

For instance, one needs color AliceBlue, where Photoshop wants 32-bit RGB values. What to do?

BTY, on a larger monitor that color blows out.  On my mac laptop, I can see it.

My picture is set to 32-bit RGB. Photoshop won't accept the RGB codes listed at http://www.w3schools.com/tags/ref_color_tryit.asp?color=AliceBlue (are those 8-bit?).

How could one get the 32-bit values?

Sure you can. Just paste the HEX value. See the picture:

I am trying to define a custom color for a gradient. The color selection dialog there looks different from the one above (there is no box for the hex code). But I gave it the RGB values  (those vertically aligned) and it took them all right. There are also 32-bit RGB values that where listed automatically.

Now, what values should I enter for H, S, and B. What do I need there?

BTW, you only need to fill a single section. HSB, RGB, Lab, CMYK, web.
The rest will automatically change when you modify a section.

Photoshop v.12.
I thought I need 32-bit color for a better gradient. But that won't let me "Save for Web". Then, after I switched to 8-bit, the color selection dialog is now like the one you posted. So this concludes the matter.

By the way, is there any secret for a gradient to look really smooth in color transition?

Not really a secret. Use PNG images. They use a loss-less compression.
See the image (click on it to see full size).

I don't think you can use 32-bit images on the Web.
