Amazing that you managed to make this video about ten times as much informative than everything I have seen about Live Color so far. Thanks.
(Btw. I wrote some time ago about the color to Pantone thing if sombody would like to keep a reference http://font.is/?p=1293 )
Jeff; How do change one of the colors to a color in your swatches library? Dave
Glad you liked it.
The CMYK > Spot trick is a real timesaver.
I’m not sure I would use Live Color for this.
It might be easier to select one object that is the color that you wish to change. Go under the Select menu>Select Same>Fill Color (or Stroke Color). Then just choose you replacement Swatch from the Swatches panel.
Ive done that last trick you showed a few times and then when I actually went to the pantone book and matched it to what I printed out, they weren’t even close. Is there another setting that I need to make sure is active? Thanks for the other tips!
Which Pantone Library did you use? Depending on the original colors, if you’re using one of the Spot Libraries, you’re right, the results may not be accurate at all. Try Pantone Color Bridge CMYK PC. You may have better luck.
And depending on what desktop printer you’re using, results can vary vastly.
All my best,
how i can get color artwork option
This is the simpliest and clearest description yet on how to use the live colour. Want to tuck this video in my pocket.
Glad you like the video.
I tried my best to get as much into a short tutorial as possible. And there’s so much to love about Live Color, it was not easy.
Thanks for this very nice tuts I tried to do it and it’s cool to change colors.
This guy’s voice is soooo annoying
