If you can't afford a new Pantone CMYK guide swatch book, have a look on ebay/amazon for a used one that's still in good condition. It should still be good enough for your purposes. Printers usually update their books often because the colours tend to fade over time, so perhaps even check with your local print shops. They might have an older one you could ...

There are several issues here. when digitally printed (a) coated or (b) uncoated, will be as close as possible? For a digital print, it is better to use an RGB file. The result on coated and uncoated can be potentially extremely different, depending on if it is tonner based or inkjet-based. I would not use a photo as a reference unless you have ...

In order to get a true color value from a photo, you have to be able to eliminate the effects of environmental color contaminants, like lighting and reflections. You can often eliminate reflections by adjusting the angle of the photo. For color contaminants, you need a known reference in the photo that you can use to recolor the image in Photoshop. Lots of ...

Shift+click doesn't change color on destined object - it only takes the color (stroke or fill) and put it as active color for stroke or fill, whatever mode is chosen. But it doesn't apply color anywhere. You can try Shift+X as next step, but it doesn't work in any case, or looking for more dirty solutions. In Inkscape - without keys - apply fill, with shift ...

Shift+click doesn't work in CS6 (at least ont in 16.0.3). It just selects desired color but not applied it. I didn't find apply color function - i tried to click with different key combinations, click on color boxes, or on numeric value to go to edit mode and acknowledge value with enter key - nothing worked. Illustrator stays blind and deaf for user tries. ...

Inkscape is an RGB application, designed for making SVGs and graphics for display on the web in web browsers, which also use RGB colours, as do computer screens. Crayon colours (and paint/inks) use a subtractive colour system, they work by absorbing and reflecting light, so they don't work the same as RGB colour which is an additive colour system which ...

Well, you can not change red to green with the same colors, but I guess you want to keep the shades of it. There are several options depending on if the elements are raster or vector. Probably the easiest way and one that work on both types of graphics is to use Effects>Adjust>Hue/SaturationLightness And slide the hue You probably want to play a bit with ...

Creating a Photoshop action and running it on a folder with Photoshop's Batch Processor is the most straightforward answer. However, this doesn't seem complicated enough to warrant that much effort. This seems more like a simple transparency effect. Putting an image on the bottom layer, with the next layer as a solid color with some blending mode and ...

Try putting the offending pixels on another layer. You can accomplish this by using the PSP lasso tool, or manually defining the pixels or manually defining the perimeter of the area you want to be "no color" (i.e. transparent). Once you isolate the pixels or the area, move them to another layer, then either turn the layer off, or delete it altogether. ...

If you're just trying to select all the RGB boxes in your document, it does not matter how you convert the colors to CMYK, as long as you verify what the CMYK values are and enter them into your preflight AFTER the conversion takes place. However, your suspicion that this isn't necessary is valid. The statement that you can have the preflight profile look ...

I'm going to take a bit of pity here and explain what you're supposed to be thinking about and learning and demonstrating here, all without doing any work for you. This is under the presumption that you genuinely feel lost and confused about the assignment, and further that you're not simply trying to get us to do your homework for you!
