Use the personalized option and move each color selector individually.
Design is not a recipe, it should be a methodology, and fortunately, it still has one human component of "taste" and personal preferences.
Complementary does not mean an exact mathematical opposite. It is also relative, because there are many "opposites" depending on ...
Try (RGB) = (73, 152, 255) with 35% opacity. Numbers have base=10. No guarantee, I cannot be sure how close the shown image is to your original. Can easily cause 1 unit errors due roundings.
ADD: It's calculated with the well known elementary mix formula. RGB component A in top layer with opacity P and the same color component B as opaque in bottom layer ...
I have a few suggestions:
Apply the dark shadow but don't worry much about it being not much visible. On fully dark black background (e.g. #000000), you can't create any dark grey shadow that's darker than background. It could be almost true in real world.
Also, you say it disappears completely, but I can still see some of it when I tried it. Maybe the ...
Here is an option to make your required dark shadow show on a dark background. This is done in Illustrator.
This is a radial gradient from black to gray behind the blue circle which has an attached dark drop shadow.
If there were an actual light source to provide the shadow then there would naturally be some light spill off onto the dark background.
I had this problem, even on a 768 pixel height laptop. Just go to windows taskbar setting, change this to "auto hide taskbar", then choose "essentials" view for illustrator. These 2 changes will give you an extra 80ish pixels height for workspace, which is enough. I have gone from not being able to see edges or move the recolour window, ...
I would use a swatch defining the K color to 50%.
In reality, I do not quite understand your second option. And this ignorance on my part is the fundament for my answer. You need to be perfectly clear on what the file is declaring.
If your file is indicating 100% Ink but somewhere else you are declaring that you need this value to be modified, is a potential ...
SVG documents can only be in RGB as far as I know. They can be automatically converted to CMYK on export from InDesign, but you can't export to a spot color like that.
I would either:
Open the SVG in Illustrator. Change the colors to the wanted spot color. Save as an AI or PDF file and relink in InDesign.
Open the SVG in Illustrator. Select the logo and ...
Keep the book cover file in RGB mode and try to find a place that does giclée print. This will give wider color gamut than other printers. The cost will be much higher. Seems like the only way to solve the color "problem".
Yes, there is always a significant difference between RGB and CMYK whatever conversion you're doing.
Yes, RGB tends to be significantly brighter and/or more saturated, than the converted CMYK equivalent.
No, the final print on paper will not look like any of the RGB and CMYK variations on-screen. The end product will also look slightly off.
No, the designer ...
