Here's a tint function from way back. pRGB is an RGB triplet, pValue is a
decimal percent value for the desired tint of the color.
function colorTint pRGB, pValue
-- pRGB is RGB triplet
-- pValue is between 0 and 1
put pRGB into theTint
repeat with N = 1 to 3
put item N of pRGB into theColorItem
put round ((1- pValue) * theColorItem + (pValue * 255)) into item N
