Copy/paste image inserts the images with pale colors

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

When I copy/paste an image within AD the inserted image is very pale. I attached a screen shot to show the effect. It doesn't matter if I copy/paste within the same document or into a new one.

 

The image has the RGB color profile, the document CMYC.

Hi Turettas,

 

part of this seems to be due to the difference in colour formats (and the used colour profiles), as you noted yourself, and is not a bug per se. On the other hand, I must confess I am a bit unsure what you mean by saying “It doesn't matter if I copy/paste within the same document or into a new one” … I guess what you mean by “within the same document” is the following:

  • Create a CMYK document and place a RGB image using File > Place …
  • Copy this image and paste it into the same document

Now the placed image has vivid colours, while the pasted one is comparably pale. Is that correct?

 

Cheers, Alex  :)

Hi Alex, thanks for your reply. Yes, that's the procedure I meant except I drag & drop the first image from a folder.

 

You are right, if I do the same as you suggested (create a document with the RGB profile) it works fine. 

 

I am wondering why the problem occurs only when I copy/paste and not at the first time when I insert the first image - even I use the place function or drag&drop the image.

 

Thanks, Martin
