hello coccus

pick the same color, but the result is different

Recommended Posts

Hi..

I use this document setup:

 

type: print (press ready)

color format: cmyk/8

color profile: U. S. web coated (SWOP) v2

 

But I have some issues, when I choose the color on the box, and I pick that color with "color picker tool" to coloring another object, the result is totally different, only cmyk code is the same.

Yes I can just copy the #xxxxxx code to coloring another object, but I want to use that color picker tool because it's simple.

And the client usually use AI to open eps file, I tried to export my files from affinity to eps file, and open it in AI, and yes the color code is changing, I'm confused :p

 

Please help me to solve this issues.

 

Thank you for your attention :)

Why are you using RGB HEX Values in a CMYK document?

If you change the Colour Panel to CMYK the Panel will show:

Using the Colour Picker to select from the original circle will maintain the 47,0,7,0 colour.

Although the colour values are different in RGB Hex, the colour is the same as shown in CMYK Untitled.gif.91fb477dffa887021558db618164beab.gif

Thank you so much for your answer, it's really really helpful :)

Yes, because mostly I work on digital I keep using RGB mode, and I'm still learning for printing purpose.

Thank you for your help :)
