Your problem is most likely your output to the printer fails to provide the fonts. Your printer is simply rasterizing the font from the preview image stored. I would guess you aren't providing a PDF? PDFs solve this problem fairly well by allowing you to embed the font information. The other way around this is to convert your fonts to curves (vectors) if you ...

Web sites can contain JPEG, GIF,PNG, SVG format graphics. Which ones should be used, and when? For photos: JPEG if there is no need for transparency. PNG for photo graphics that need transparency. Whilst not 100% true, it's a good rule of thumb. Check out the other answers to this question to learn more about the other formats. Also, check out ...

The color space of the artwork wouldn't affect the clarity, only the vibrancy and appearance of colors. This sounds more to me like your ads are not created at a high enough resolution. If your ads are mostly text-based, you may want to see if your designer can provide you with vector versions of the ads. If not, ask for 300 dpi CMYK images, typically in ...

This is called chromatic aberration. Here's an example from Wikimedia: The Oculus Developer Guide (PDF) provides a nice explanation: Chromatic aberration is a visual artifact seen when viewing images through lenses. The phenomenon causes colored fringes to be visible around objects, and is increasingly more apparent as our view shifts away from the ...

This effect can normally be found under the name RGB Twitch, RGB Slide, RGB distortion, RGB displacement, etc. So, from what you can see, this is a visual reference to the old RGB screens that on occasion would show the image with the colour channels displaced, thus resulting in unexpected or undesired effects. There are several ways of doing this, and ...

How "official" do the colour names need to be exactly? The first thing I thought of was looking at colour names given to paint by companies such as Dulux they use names for a whole range of shades and tones.

What lies beyond primary and secondary colors? Tertiary colors are created by combining adjacent primary and secondary colors. For example with the traditional primary and secondary colors our tertiary colors would be vermilion (red + orange), amber (yellow + orange), chartreuse (yellow + green), teal (blue + green), violet (blue + purple), and magenta (red ...

It really depends on what you want to do with the colours. If you're plotting multiple plits in a single graph, you need way different colours thanfor a good colour scheme you'd make a poster design with. Since Zach already provided good colours for the contrasting-graph scenario, I'll add my advice for creating a balanced colour scheme. Since the current ...

Colors similar to these might work, assuming the colors are for team colors or something similar. #8C8C8C #EB2E32 #A349A4 #141414

In the wikipedia article on spot color: In offset printing, a spot color is any color generated by an ink (pure or mixed) that is printed using a single run. [CMYKOG...] The two additional spot colors are added to compensate for the ineffective reproduction of faint tints using CMYK colors only. However, offset technicians around the world use ...

Interesting question! I honestly don't understand Luma, Chroma and Chrominance well enough to explain why it is or isn't increased by adding to one or more of the channels. It might increase them, or it might not. I wouldn't know. It definetly does NOT increase saturation. If we start at (0, 0, 0) and add the same ammount to all channels, the saturation ...

Color is not a simple thing, each and every monitor and sensing environment is different. Hell even just changing the lights change color. Even paper makers realized this years ago. White in northern Europe is light blue in the tropics, whereas white of a tropical ay is yellow in the north. While its partially culturally preferred you can actually observe ...

Send your client a PDF format but save the file as sRGB. Their monitor will display the colours better when they open it. That's just for them to view. But if they having more issues. Then send them a Hard copy proof.

I suspect the job is actually a 5 color spot (maybe + black) and not CMYK + Silver. I'm not certain if the black is actually part of the spot color piece. It does look like there are 2 separate pieces of packaging in that photograph. So, the black ramp may be an entirely different package. The fact that it's a spot color job is indicated by the color ramps ...

This question's vague, but if you're using Photoshop the Color Sampler Tool may be what you need. Accessible underneath the eyedropper tool, it looks like this: You can click specific points on your document, like say the blobs on your example image: And in the info panel the point's color values will be displayed: Hope that helps!

The browser doesn't really care which format the color is in, performance is negligible. As such, I'll focus on the decision's effects on the developer(s) and the use cases. A lot of developers find HEX values easier to read than RGB or HSL. As such, I tend to use HEX so that the next developer working on the project may have an easier job, even slightly ...

As far as I am aware, colored brushes are not possible in Photoshop. As for your alternative question though, definitely! Just use gradient maps. For instance: If you have a grayscale gradient like this: And you apply the following gradient map to it (accessible from image/adjustments or as an adjustment layer): You'll get the following new ...

Select All and choose Edit > Edit Colors > Recolor Artwork. You can then alter colors easily regardless of them being gradients or solid colors. Then just click OK when you're done. This will not alter any linked or embedded raster images and may or may not alter raster effects.

Hey Jason, Is this kind of what you're trying to accomplish? If so, my recommendation would be to select the shapes that you want to change the colors on, then go into your gradient panel, shown here on the right (the square icon that has a gradient). Then select the color box on the slide scale>click the menu in the upper right hand corner>RGB>enter hex ...

I notice if you render the element containing your gradient with the GPU using transform:translateZ(0), it render smoother, not perfect, but smoother.

I have been having this problem too and I cant figure out why. But what I did to solve this problem was save the illustrator file as a PDF. Then I open the PDF in Photoshop and save it as a JPEG. When sending that JPEG file the colors were sent correctly. Hope this helps but I wish I knew how without all those extra steps.

I found the answer by checking all my layers. My layers are very organised, in groups etc. Within one of my CLOSED LAYER GROUPS, ABOVE THE SHAPE LAYER I was working on, was a hue and saturation layer. This was affecting the colour I was trying to specify. So simple, yet so frustrating. And there I was thinking my new Photoshop CS6 was somehow corrupt and ...

I make generative art works which employ color schemes downloaded from kuler.adobe.com as ASE files.I improved the script provided by plainclothes to make a useful multiple ASE file loader tool to load all the color schemes I downloaded in one go. The tool uses the ActionScript File.openDialog class to select multiple ASE files from the download folder. It ...

John should be correct if you are exporting as CMYK, look up "Color Gamut" online and you can see the difference between RGB and CMYK color models. You might want to check to see if the box you have the picture imported into in inDesign has a very light fill applied, as well. Often that will shade a picture when exported if not turned to "none". We get ...

There's no such thing as brown, everything is simply light black (if closely examined).

For people who don't have Adobe Photoshop, here's a free and cross-platform alternative: Using ImageMagick, it can be done in command line convert lQchR.png -auto-level -white-threshold 78% fish.png This may require some fine tuning of the white threshold value, but it's quicker than GUI especially when you have multiple pictures: convert *.png ...

Colorizr.js might be a good tool to play with the colors and see what suites your taste. When you use this tool the idea is to configure color pickers for different parts of your page and then adjust and fine-tune those colors.

Usually I find it hard to guess which color will work well. A better way would be to play around with the colors and see which color turns out how in the whole context of the page. You can do this interactively on your own webpage by using Colorizr.js. Maybe you could post later which colors you finally chose.
