Ok, there are several possibilities. You can try to identify source of your problem using a list of possible causes or jump directly to different approach I would suggest. List of possible causes What software are you using to create this logo? If you use vector SW like Illustrator I would suggest recreating it in Photoshop since rules that usually mean ...

There's no way to predict what CMYK colors will look like on paper from your monitor. Even a calibrated monitor can't match all CMYK colors properly. The options: Invest in a Pantone Process Color Swatch Book. This is a swatch book of actual printed CMYK colors. Find what you are looking for and then use that color in your file. Ask the printer for a ...

I wouldn't say there is a full-proof method for this. I think you may just need to adjust the Saturation and Brightness of each color so that colors that are close, like black and brown, don't appear the same. See my example below for your 5 colors.

At least for a first approximation, go for hues at 0°, 72°, 144°, 216° and 288° (hint: 72° = 360°/5), like this: Tweak the colors to satisfaction. For example, if red and violet feel too strong for you, you could try shifting all hues by a few degrees (this seems pretty okay) or otherwise playing with luminosity and (to a lesser extent) saturation. As ...

There are two issues here. 1) You should calibrate your monitor if you haven't done that already. You don't necessarily need a top-of-the-line monitor from Dell or Eizo with the truest possible colors, but you should at least be able to 'trust' your own monitor. Often photography stores let you rent the required hardware to calibrate your monitor for a few ...

Your original image ("8SLgo.png", labeled "here is the image" in your question) already has the blurring between squares and blurry text. Here it is, enlarged 5x and composed against a white background: It looks to me as though your friend created the image in a smaller size and then enlarged it to the 110x130 size before sending it to you. If the ...

Never trust the color which your monitor displays in any program. On-screen representation in photoshop is NOT an accurate representation of the final printed color. Even custom calibration of your monitor to get accurate color rendering will not always guarantee a match with the actual printed color. There is a large difference between the way the color ...

You could make the transparent bar have a background of black but instead have the opacity set to 20%. Then you could use off white icons and text. Try using Ghostwhite or something like that, since white on black is quite harsh. You can still have the fade until 400px too. But it will be much smoother.

I had a similar problem with CS5 and I found out that I had option Web colors checked, and this didn't allow me to set the colors that I wanted. This might be possible solution.

Ok, now I better understand what you're looking for. In Photoshop, you can open 2 images and then go to Image>Adjustments>Match Color. This will get your photos closer to one another. You may still need to tweak your colors with either a Color Balance, Hue, or Photo Filter adjustment layer.

I would go with a cool grey to let your content be the focus. If you're looking for a pattern you can find one and recolor it, or create you own. But most modern websites have very simple backgrounds with subtle patterns or textures.

You simply need to experiment with modes and opacity to get where you want to go... I, personally, would probably opt for the Color blending mode above Hue. Then simply adjust the opacity of the layer until you're happy.
