You can't create an Illustrator script which alters the core code base of the application. Essentially, that is what would be required to remove a color or otherwise alter the list of available layer highlight colors in Illustrator. So what you are seeking is impossible, even for a script. Okay, you could write some malware script to alter applications, but ...

You're using a Brush that has transparency built into it. There's no way around that effect as a result without opening the .abr file and adjusting the opacity of the stroke which would defeat the purpose of using that brush to begin with. For example here is a Watercolor Brush on white background: If I remove the white background even though the brush ...

Is everything vector? If so why on earth are you using Photoshop? – Scott May 28 at 20:01 Totally. If it is a manufacturing process you need+should do it in vector format. If the exported image is raster you should vectorize it again. The only walk arround would be that you exported a raster image in real size at 600 ppi at least (1200 ppi would be ...

In agreement with DA01, it is best to use the Pantone Bridge to connect the dots, but what you are experiencing is that your "Edit/Color Settings" are probably different from Illustrator and Photoshop. It is best to set your master color settings in Adobe Bridge and save them as a preset, which then makes all Adobe programs use the same Color Settings. If ...

There is no easy answer to your question without seeing the image. It might be trivial or it might be really hard. It would be so much better if your image would have been vector to begin with. In anycase given the realy vague requirements would suggest using imagemagick, its free and easy to batch. There are a ton of examples around the net. (start by ...

Either they are grouped and need to be ungrouped, or they are merged with Pathfinder and need to "expand" them, or they are compound paths that have to be released. If they are just stroked lines, you may need to draw a new box and fill it in their place. Tricky, but those are some solutions.

According to the guidelines, 26% opacity is meant for hint text and disabled text. More prominent labels should be 87% black or 54% black depending on whether they are considered primary or secondary text. In the guideline you quoted: Text hints for users, like those in text fields and labels, have an even lower visual prominence and should have an ...

I was having the same issue, copying an illustrator logo from another designer into a print piece in cs6. I noticed that the 100y yellow changed to 100Y 49M orange. I am copying from cmyk to cmyk and my color setting for cmyk is set to ignore profiles and preserve numbers so this shouldn't be happening. Then I noticed that the donor file color swatches are ...

It is NOT a Mac OSX vs Windows... It is a color calibrated workflow issue. The options are. A. 1) Send a color chart to the client. (see this post How to get close to PMS 662 or PMS 296 in CMYK?) Already embedded in a Word file. 2) Let him print this color chart on the specific printer they will be using. 3) Pick up that sample. 4) Adjust the colors ...

The color All offset printer can use chocolate mousse to pint if you feed it with that... well probably no, but it does not matter what is the color of the ink you feed. Some Machines can print just one color at the time. That is one head printer. For aditional colors you need to clean the machine and feed the paper again. Some machines can print 2 colors ...

Based off your last question: Describe two different graphs (as in the example) that represent essentially the same color I think the graphs themselves show the necessary data to come to the conclusion that these 2 separate animals share the ability to see parts of the color spectrum wavelength. My suggestion would be to create a legend, use text ...

If you want to know what color mode and image is on illustrator use your link panel. I am currently working on a brochure and my color mode on illustrator is set to CMYK, however you can still have images in your document that are in RGB mode. Open your Link panel by going to Window and scroll down to Links. Then find the image in your links panel that you ...

Thanks for all the responses but I played around with it a bit and finally achieved the outcome I was looking for.I just used the ellipse tool to create a circle,then I increased the thickness of the stroke to a little taller then the height of the letters.I then put the new circle behind the letters strung around in a circle and It turned out great!

You can just create a gradient-filled shape layer, then apply a Gradient Overlay Layer Style to that shape. The Shape layer contains a gradient of 2 colors... then the Layer Style adds the third color. Right-click/Control-Click the image above and choose Open image in new tab/window to see it larger if needed.

In general, it's a question of preference. But yes, designers should always keep in mind the target market, and a rule a lot of us forget is: Is it readable, is it clear? Some designers prefer to be "artsy" and others are more practical. On screen: Gray can be easier to read if you use a dark gray. With a black at 100% on pages with a lot of text, it ...

Hum... I basicly see: 1) Grayscale image. You can crop the black and white values using levels. Normally you just adjust it enough so the graph touches the borders, but in this case you need to move that graph further away. 2) Change the blend mode to multiply and use whichever color you need in a layer or background below it. The specifics would depend ...

You'll need to create a gradient map over the image: Layer > new adjustment layer > gradient map Then select 2 colours you would like to use in the gradient from the properties panel.

@Wrzlprmft made an excellent comment that really helped. Although his solution didn't quite get me 100% of the way there, it did put me on the right path. This web app is a Django app (Python). As a result, I've decided to use a library called spectra. Spectra has functionality identical to Highcharts' stops with linearGradient. Spectra allows me to do ...

It sounds like you might be talking about a series of colours that have the same chroma but different value. See my Fig. 1.2.7 on this page: http://www.huevaluechroma.com/012.php

The traditional colour wheel, for all its faults, is right about the fact that colourant-mixing complementaries differ from additive complementaries near the yellow-blue axis. RGB "blue" and RGB "yellow" are additive complementaries, and in subtractive mixing of IDEAL colourants (reflecting wavelengths in an all-or-nothing fashion) would also be ...

Neutrality has two meanings: A color with low to zero saturation. A lack of differentiation compared to the surroundings. If you're going for #1, switch to HSB color mode and set S to something under 30. For #2, you'll have to consider factors crossing hue, saturation, brightness, texture, style, etc. It's a relative measure of an element's uniqueness ...

First you need to define what you think is "neutral". I'm uncertain if you are referring to a neutral color palette or something else. So, I'll assume you mean an palette. Most often neutral colors elude to greyscale and sometimes beige or tans. The point of a "neutral" palette is that it is not vibrant or eye-catching, but rather understated and ...

Identify the non-neutral elements of your table and figure out how to fix them. the table has an uneven color distribution, with very bright cells and very dark cells, both of which attract attention, and so are not neutral. several table cells have the same color, these also draw the eye and brain into finding a connection, and so again, not neutral some ...

My 2 cents. 1) If you are refering to Joonas coment. You need that some cells doesn't stand out more than others, do not randomize the colors. Do it more mechanical. A Checkboard pattern? The same color for all with a white border in between? The same color each 2 rows? 2) If you refer to context? The blue + the title America at the beguinning looks ...

As for technically realising this, any decent plotting program offers possibilities to customise colour axes as you like. As far as I can tell, Highcharts allows for this: You set stops on your colour axis with colours you define and everything else is interpolated linearly between those colours. This way you can use the full colour spectrum with an “exact ...

You only really need to worry that a) The color you use is 'in the ballpark' of the official print colors the brand dictates and b) the colors you use look and work together in relation to each other. In other words, how the colors look in relation from one display to the next really isn't nearly as important as few people will be looking at your UI on two ...


2

No two display devices display the same color. Even two of the same panels do not display same color as they have small differences in usage history. Also because surrounding conditions affect color perception its not possible to be exact, without specialized tools and processes. The more pedantic or accurate you are the more true this statement is. In ...

You have to use the same color settings (for RGB and CMYK) in both software. I suggest you to use FOGRA39 (or FOGRA27) profile for CMYK and sRGB profile for the RGB colorspace. Go to: Edit > Color Settings... and set the right color settings for all CC software. But, as said, you can't paste hex color value inside a CMYK colorspace. Instead, just copy ...

Or: you can convert to curves (together). And then, only select one of them.

Yes it would be redundant. The Color Bridge Guide has 2 swatches for every color - the Pantone color, then next to it the CMYK equivalent. There would be little point in also having the solid formula guide. Okay, not totally redundant. Sometimes having the full swatch of the Pantone color can be handy, but it won't be any different than the color in the ...

If their brand color is that orange, that you don't change it. That is the entire point of having a color as part of their brand imagery. That doesn't mean you need to use that color as part of the UI. Branding is branding, UI is UI. Use the right colors for each. How to make the branding area of the page fit well with the UI part of the page becomes a ...

You can get some idea by trying out monochrome, analogous, triad or tetrad schemes in the color wheel. Here's one suggested by Paletton. You can also check for color blindness. I also tried your color to find related images and illustration using the MulticolorEngine tool. This can give you a fair idea on what colors can go with it. You can also try ...

I use encycolorpedia for this. It recommends: Inverted: #0c8cde 25% Saturated: #fe7015 Grayscale: #8a8a8a 25% Lighter: #f69c62 25% Darker: #c4530a chocolate: #d2691e 25% Desaturated: #d8783b It also supplies closely related colors used by popular sites, which might give you some additional ideas: Home Depot #ee7125 Etsy #eb6d20 StackOverflow ...

I'm just gonna put this in an answer. Useful links: Coolors You just replace one of the HEX colors at the bottom with your orange, lock the color (by hovering) and press the spacebar. You can tap it multiple times to change it and I think it's also dependent on where you drag the color in the palette. http://coolors.co/app Color hex You get all sorts ...

A single gradient map adjustment layer will do this for you, and let you have very precise control over the colour, because you get to map values to tones. This is perfect for products where you need to match an exact colour. Here's a really quick attempt: The gradient map goes from black to Pantone 7596 (at 60% location) to white. Gradient maps work in ...

If you really want to do this in a "mechanical" way or if you need to print CMYK + a Pantone, there's a few ways to do it. Here is one: 1) Make a duplicate of your file and keep the original file somewhere. 2) Make a layer mask to isolate the nipple image from the shadow; use a brush with a hardness that isn't below 85% and not 100% either. Don't use ...

A method you can try in this situation is extract the bottle nipple as you did then do the following. Make the make the image black and white. Add a color fill layer above the bottle nipple layer in the color you need, make it a clipping mask and set the blend mode to multiply. Add another layer and paint a dot(in the color you need) that overlaps the ...

BTW, I don't want to change only the "#3d507d" pixels, I want to change also the "gradiented"/"Edged"/"partly transparent" pixels to match the change I am not entirely sure what data you have, but if you happen to have SVGs (or another vector format), the problem with partial pixels does not arise, as there are no pixels in the first place. In this ...

I think a lot of designers have this issue. We find looking up inspiration and colour palettes to be the right answer. Also sometimes clients choose colours that we as designers know are not in the best interest of the brand or the design. There are times where we have to give our professional opinion on the matter. Remember you are the one who is designing ...

If you're planning to do printing and packaging, you should necessarily get a Spyder5PRO or Spyder5ELITE, as the EXPRESS version won't compensate the ambient light of your room with its ambient light sensor. This is important as the contrast will be adjusted correctly for your working room. Additionally, ensure that you have a constant, darkened room light ...
