Yup, that’s how you do it.

However, you’ll have to change the display mode in the 3D Viewport before you’ll see it. Have a look at where the green arrow points:

Changing to Texture, Material or Render will show the texture map you’ve applied.

Yeah, i can see it in texture-mode, but i only can switch between dark and/or light color (or on/off if you will) when using the invert-node, on itself (without the invert node) I cannot get the RGB-node to do anything… im looking for a way to control the “color spectrum” in a finer and more subtle way (hope that it explains it clear enough)
