What are you trying to achieve? I guess you want to put the black text onto another background, so you want all the white to become transparent. Easiest way in photoshop is to use a layer blend mode. - make your scanned text into a new layer - change the layer blend to "Multiply" or "Darken" - you can see which gives best results. I edited this after I ...

Every colour has three variables; hue, saturation, and brightness. Key to legibility is contrast which is can be optimised for each of the three variables independent of each other. For example; the hue contrast can be optimised by finding its complement. The saturation contrast can be optimised by choosing opposites for each ground. Similarly, bright can ...

Take your image Pixelate your image. Work out the exact number of Rubiks cube cells you will have and make your image that size in pixels, so 1 cell = 1 pixel. If you don't know what scale you want to work at, don't know how many cubes you want to use etc. Using the Mosaic effect (Filter → Pixelate → Mosiac...) will help you preview quickly. ...

I found another similar post here on Stack Exchange which pretty much solves the problem... "Set stroke color of multiple objects as respective fill colors". -You can sort of do this in Illustrator by expanding the paths themselves, instead of using a stroke. Select all objects and set their strokes to none Use the menu command Object → Path → Offset ...

Recreate your image with the areas that you want to change the color of with CSS as transparent. You can do this in Photoshop by applying your grayscale image as a mask over a solid color layer. Your image background is gray so first use levels to make the gray areas white. Select All (cmd+A) and Copy (cmd+C) Create a new Solid Color Layer and add a Layer ...

Since the image is a raster graphic, the only way you'd be able to influence the color of the image is through blend modes. You would need to have a solid color sit under the image that you want to blend. You would preferably do this by setting the background property of the image's parent container to the color you want to tint the image and use an ...

First, Place your image and make sure it actually is grayscale. You can do that by looking at the link info in the Links panel. Setting the fill color on the frame will change the fill of the whole frame and any white parts of your grayscale image. Selecting the image within the frame and setting the fill color will change the color of the black parts ...

If you open up the palettes tab Windows->Dockable Dialogs->Palettes , you will note that the colormap for any opened indexed image is ready to be used as a palette (if you want such a palette to become a permanent asset, just use the duplicate button on it, available at the bottom of the dialog). To use those colors on another image, there are two ...

OK, so... I saw your question and remembered I've been meaning to write a script to do this in Illustrator. So I did it... I havn't tested it much and it could probably be cleaned up a bit but it should work (it does for me with CS6 on OS X) It takes all your selected swatches and prints the CMYK, RGB and HEX (and name if it's a Spot color) of all those ...

I don't think there is such an option for the moment. The only way i found to do this is : Select an objet with the base color, on a white background Change shape opacity Stay on your shape and use color picker to get the lighter color

Seems to me the problem is with the brush tool correct? If the Pencil Tool works great, then let's look at the brush tool. Be sure you are painting in "Normal" Mode, and that Opacity and Flow are at 100%. Go to your brush settings. Either select a Brush Preset or unclick evrything to leave your brush as simple as possible. My guess is you probably ...

You can not compensate. Obsessing about the perfect hue is largely irrelevant for most audiences. All you can really do is make your part and use a monitor that is calibrated or emulating sRGB. Average user does not really have a choice on the color they are displayed. They can have bad, cheap, damaged or old panels. Since the color effects are global no ...

Those numbers out of context are devoid of meaning. That is saying cmyk 0 9 100 0 means nothing accurate. Without a specification on what particular CMYK space is in question. Each printer be it a offset press or desktop printer prints a different color with said CMYK values. Reason for this is different inks have different colors different opacities. ...

No. None of your specific questions come to play. The number of pixels in a digital display is fixed, so no nothing changes the pixel density of a display. Pixel density has no meaning for the generator of a image the only thing that counts is how many pixels your display has. The physical size and density are beyond your reach, but they also do not affect ...

Find the connecting color. This is probably a medium purple. Use this color in between, or use a red-purple-blue gradient.

I agree with CAI's comment that the logos look fine on the CD. How can I include both of these elements on the disc even though they don't match? I don't think you can do anything about it and I wouldn't alter a logo unless it was ok based on the companies branding guideline. It does help if you're working with a neutral colored background. I mostly ...

I second the @joojaa's answer and would like to add that trying to match colors across different devices is really only feasible in a color calibrated workflow. I see a lot of small print shops that don't use a color calibrated workflow. Bottom line, in my experience (10 years in the industry), is: if color matching is important, use a color calibrated ...

All devices produce different colors with same values of CMYK! A cmyk value of x does not guarantee same color. So if you need the same color across devices then you need to have a fresh color profile associated with your device and the device needs to be calibrated. Only then will you know what the color is and can even attempt to come as close as ...

A 0.25 or 0.54 difference in one ink in a process mix shouldn't make a difference, but if I were you I'd just round the values up/down. So you'll have C71 M13 Y0 K0. As for the print result, there are a number of things you want to consider: Does the new printer do the same type of printing? You might find that the old printer was using a HP Indigo ...

I think you're talking about Hue "H:", make sure the H: circle is checked. Right now you're only changing the green value of RGB.

Open "Levels" and zoom in as close as you can on one of the incorrect pixels. Using the Black Eye Dropper within the Levels window, click on the bad pixel. It will change all pixels of that color (and darker) to pure black.

I would tackle this in two stages. 1. Sort your images by color. ImageMagick would be a good option. My answer here has a method for finding the average color of an image. A quick search for 'ImageMagick average color' will find you some more methods with ImageMagick. Since you are working with product images, I'm assuming the products will be roughly in ...

The easiest way. It is easy because there are only two colors. Take the quick wand tool and select all reds. Make background color black. Then ( Ctrl+ backspace). Its done!

First of all. Some definitions, here is a similar question with a small explanation on diferent options. It is not carved in stone, but it could help you with some terminology. http://photo.stackexchange.com/questions/75865/which-print-medium-has-the-highest-dynamic-range/76016#76016 In your specific case. 1) You should not convert a picture from RGB to ...

Converting a RGB image to CMYK will almost always result in dull, muddy colours, as they'll be made up of a combination of two, three or even four inks. Some consumer printers print with six inks (CcMmYK) and can achieve more vibrant colours, but they still won't match your screen output. As a general rule, I try to use two inks per colour, three at the ...
