For color calibration to be of any real use, it is important that you work in a controlled, stable-light environment - meaning that your light quality does not change. This does mean avoiding natural light as it changes due to time of day and, as your question also notes, the time of year. So circling back around to your question - the white-point setting ...

I have seen this book in an exhibition in Brussels, It's offset inside and airbrush on the sides and the cover. Just by looking at the pictures, you can tell that the colors on the borders of the pages a far more saturated than the colors inside. Anyway, there is simply not any printing process that can reprocude all the gamut of even sRGB, or Adobe RGB. ...

If the client gives absolutely no clues as to what they want, except "something flash", then your only way would be to show them some examples. Start with the things you like yourself. Show them some quick sketches you did, or some work you found on the internet. This way they could push you in the right direction, and hopefully specific enough for you to ...

You can go to File > Document Color Mode and the current color mode will have a checkmark next to it. You can switch between color modes in this menu.

GIMP 2.6.12 is outdated, this might be the cause for your problem. Also, in general, GIMP does not make any promises in regard to the color values of fully transparent pixels, but in this case, and with 2.8.14, I can't reproduce your problem. Loading a TGA file, and pasting the contents of a different TGA file into a layer mask, and then exporting the image ...

If you’d like to accurately apply a flat colour to a PNG with transparency, while maintaining the transparency, there’s many ways Photoshop can do it. Here’s probably the easiest method: Open the PNG. Choose Layer → Layer Style → Color Overlay Choose a colour (using normal blending mode and 100% opacity). You’re done!

I hope this might help. In Image...Adjustments/Hue/Saturation, choose Colorize.

This is not a standard option for image programs,as you found out. GIMP, including GIMP 2.6 however do have such an option, but for .png files (you will be able to see the option for "preserve color information for transparent pixels" on the export to .PNG dialog.) For a TGA file, your options are: editing the TGA file plug-in in GIMP and copy the ...

I'm using Illustrator CC(2014) on Windows 7 Pro (and have been using Illustrator for a very long time, indeed) I believe what you want is the SWATCHES panel. If it's not showing up automatically, find it in Window > Swatches In the lower left corner (arrow is pointing to it) is the Library button. Click that and you'll see the list of standard color ...

It states the colour model in the tab at the top of the window; it should say something along the lines of 'MyFile.ai @50% (RGB/Preview)' on the tab for every file you have open.

I ended up doing this: Used the Dodge tools (midtones) to remove any grey in the glass area Curve adjustment to remove any grey from the thicker parts of the glass, ie sides and bottom of the glass Eyedropper on the normal glass area in the middle and Levels adjustment to make this 5/4/4/0 Added a line of reflection in the left of the glass and made this a ...

You can create an adjustment layer like this: At the bottom of the layers panel, click the adjustment layer icon () Choose Hue/Saturation Adjust the colors This will work for what you need to do. However, if you have layers below the adjustment layer, they will also be affected.

This is likely how the developers intended Affinity Designer to work. JPEG and PNG are intended for web-based images where CMYK is not likely to be useful. You can export as TIFF in CMYK though. Finally, you can always contact the developers of Affinity Designer and ask if they'll build in support for exporting CMYK PNGs and JPEGs.

Note that a PNG in Illustrator is seen as one object. There is no mechanism to allow a user to color individual pieces of a PNG within Illustrator. You could use Image Trace to convert your PNG to vector objects. Results are highly dependent upon trace settings and the original artwork. To work with the PNG as a whole... Embed your PNG into Illustrator and ...

A few things I learnt when I worked as a graphic design in a printer office with Corel Draw 7: Font: Make sure all text is converted to curves. The printer may don't have the font and if they installed all the fonts they need for all works they print... (a lot of Gb), it would slow down their computer and software. How to check this in Corel Draw? Go to ...

Here's possibly what's happening: Illustrator favors the pantone name over the CMYK values. So if the creator of the logo chose a pantone color, but then modified the CMYK values of it (by clicking on the swatch and switching from book mode to CMYK mode). The colors of that swatch are now different, but the name of the swatch is still the name of the ...

"No light text on dark background" is a good guideline, but not a rule. Like all design decisions, the correct answer is dependent on the situation at hand. Certain people prefer darker background with lighter text, others prefer the opposite. The medium you're using also has an effect, as does the situation in which the design is read (for example when I'm ...

Simple answer, yes. Dark text on a light background is generally preferable to light text on a dark background and whilst there maybe plenty of times where a design purpose overrides this default (maybe you're creating a flyer for a Halloween party or a poster for a heavy metal band so a dark background makes more sense), it's generally not a bad rule of ...
