It's caused by anti-aliasing, used by Illustrator to display graphics without pixelated edges. However, anti-aliasing causes display artefacts when two colours butt up against each other. The problem doesn't only affect Illustrator, but also other similar vector image editors. You can eliminate the problem by selecting the text box, open the Appearance ...

I can suggest a method to make the cone, but I think the gradients will probably have to be created manually. I can't really think of a quick way of doing them. Sorry about that. Anyway, here goes: Select the circle and squish it into an oval Copy it, paste in front, and group the copy Hide the group Use the Lasso Tool to select the middle anchors Using ...

It's difficult to say what's wrong. It could be one of many things. Here are some things to consider: Some consumer grade digital photo printing services (and desktop home/office inkjet printers) expect RGB image files, with an sRGB colour profile. They aren't set up for printing CMYK images at all. Professional grade digital printers should be able to ...

There's no such thing as a CMYK gold. What you need is a special color which should be marked as 'spot' color in your source file and shaped like the logo and header text. Convert text to outlines and the logo to a single color then apply a pink to all these and make it a 'spot' pink set to 'overprint'. No, I don't know how to do that in Photoshop, but I'm ...

A few quick thoughts from an architectural and technical illustrator and renderer on shadows & shadow colours: Shadow colour is complex, and is driven by a number of factors: local tone of the object onto which the shadow is being cast, the colours of the various direct light sources in the space, and the incident or bounced light colour contributions ...

Select the Eyedropper Tool and click on the color you want to use. Switch to image A. Enter Select > Color Range. Click on the color you want to replace in the image (...

Fluorescent Pantone colours are spot colours, i.e. special inks with fluorescent pigments. Yes you would have to specify them. Your print company will need to make separations (separate screens) for each fluorescent colour in addition to any other colours. In Photoshop you would need to add a spot colour channel. Usually you would begin with a CMYK or ...

The way you have done it with a rectangle behind the group is the way to "fill" behind a "group"- this is done often- you could also group the rectangle with the lines so they could easily be moved around together. Alternately, you could combine the rectangle and the group of lines into a compound path (Object>compound path>make) so it is all one "object"- ...

You're doing it right. For a background to exist there, you need a separate white object in the exact same shape and size as your group.

That's alot of questions with a single answer: PNG does not support CMYK PNG only works in RGB

Are you both using the exact same monitor model with the exact same settings? The same video card, drivers and operating system? Assuming you don't, that's likely the main reason for this.

No. Even if you start out with known CMYK values, it is not guaranteed that the output will result in those exact values. In fact, they almost certainly will not. A properly calibrated printer will have been calibrated against the target stock, in which case the white value of the stock will be accounted for in the CMYK adjustments. The CMYK input values ...

As others have stated, you should read up on color management in general. It's a large subject so it's a bit much to explain it all here. The short version Your Illustrator document is (consciously or not) set up with an RGB profile and a CMYK profile. When converting colors (for example as you do in the Color Picker) Illustrator use these two profiles to ...

There is a way where you can preview the design and see how it would look to a person with color blindness. There is an automatic way built inside the Adobe Illustrator CC 2020 (ver 24.0.2). Go to View > Proof Setup

Nice compositing btw, congratulations. Every "color" has color, even black. But to be more precise we could refer as hue when the color is not completely unsaturated. Yes, it can, because in the case of the plant, it has more than one light source, so the light behind the vase has a warm tone on it. You can also note the warm tone of the "shadow" part of ...

The shadow should not be plain gray, but should instead take the shade of its surrounding area. That's because of color temperature in the image, which in strong sunlight can take a slight yellow tint. Then during processing, like importing via Camera Raw, you can further manipulate the tint in a photo, which affects everything, including shadows. Then, ...

The problem lies at the other end of the cable: different hardware & software (PC vs Mac) sending different rendering to the same monitor. Alot of settings in both your PC and Mac can affect this, and there's no magic button to 'sync' settings affecting color rendering. If I had this problem, I would not worry much. My client will probably see a third ...

You can't remove that in Illustrator, because Illustrator is built around editing vector files, and PNG is not vector artwork, it is a raster format (made of pixels). You can however, attempt to do this in Photoshop — which works with pixels — using the 'Levels' panel.

Its really hard to come up with a good mathematical reasoning for color because color is not a simple vector quantity. Roughly saturation is more vivid. But in terms of a image vividity is used for a transformation that increases image contrast by adding saturation based on a convolution. In reality its really its not so easy to do this kind of analysis in ...
