This is such a large topic that it deserves an entire Wiki devoted to it. However...

Color and Nuke

Why Nuke is and isn't a great color manipulator.

Color nodes

Really important nodes are marked with an asterix:

Color operations

All color edits involve one or more discrete operations that are, at heart, entirely mathematical. They may be visualized using the Sampler node, using the method described in this page.

In this page basic color operations are visualised. These operations are related to specific nodes.

The color picker

All color nodes feature a color picker, using which a color may be selected. It is described here.

Color grading

A short review of color grading here.

Evaluating color

When doing a color manipulation on an image it is wise to seek feedback on what you are doing. Nuke has many tools with which this can be done. Here's how.
