Matching Image Colours with Site Colours

Hi
I would like to match the colour of an image to the site corporate colours.  If you see this logo - http://www.portfoliohealth.co.uk/ - you can see that the pastel green colour (#CDE8D9) on the far left of the the graduated image is different to the main colour in the 'p' logo opn the right.
Any idea on mathing these exactly (or as near as)?
Many thanks

Have you tried the Eye Dropper tool over the area?
It kind of difficult to determine which green is the color your looking for since there appears to be an oval in the middle.
Another idea to help pinpoint a color is to draw a Export Area JUST around the 'green' rounded logo. Double click it once drawn and it will take you to the Export dialog. Chnage the output to Gif /256 colors and you can see the exact green color variants in that area. To the right of the Gif, there's a Options icon, click that and from the list choose Sort by Luminance. You can then get a better idea of the darkest to lightest greens. Mouseover/click anyone of them and the rgb/hex shows up. Copy down the ones you need.
You can also choose Save > Save Palette (.act) from the Same Option context list, and load it directly into the Window > Swatches > Panel Options (Add Swatches (.act) command). This way you can interact with the Swatches Panel and you recreated logo.

  • Batch replace a colour with another colour

    I have over 100 documents. In these documents, some of the objects use a regular black colour (e.g. C0, M0, Y0, K100). I need to replace it as a rich black (e.g. C75, M68, Y67, K90). The regular black colour is NOT saved as a swatch, so I can't just update the swatch. The objects are made of paths and shapes, some of which are in groups.
    I found a script here and have updated it to suit my needs (The original script requires you to select an object, my update automatically selects all objects in the file). It works fine on a simple document that has a few layers. However, on more complex documents that have multiple nested layers, I get the following error:
    Error 1302: No such element
    Line: 9
    ->       myItem=docRef.pathItems[i];
    Here is my code:
    var docRef = app.activeDocument;
    docRef.hasSelectedArtwork = true;
    var iL=docRef.pageItems.length;
    for (i=0;i<iL;i++){
         myItem=docRef.pathItems[i];
              if (myItem.fillColor=="[CMYKColor]" && myItem.selected){ //implement only for CMYK and selected
         var c1=0;
         var m1=0;
         var y1=0;
         var k1=100;
         var c2=Math.round(myItem.fillColor.cyan); // round the number ( 0,0012 => 0 )
         var m2=Math.round(myItem.fillColor.magenta); // round the number ( 6,8898 => 7 )
         var y2=Math.round(myItem.fillColor.yellow);
         var k2=Math.round(myItem.fillColor.black);
         if (c1==c2&&m1==m2&&y1==y2&&k1==k2){ // compare
         myItem.fillColor.cyan=75;
         myItem.fillColor.magenta=68;
         myItem.fillColor.yellow=67;
         myItem.fillColor.black=90;
          redraw();
                        } // if compare
              } // if CMYK
         } // end for
    How can I overcome the error.

    Hi @big_smile,
    It's ok.
    But you are right, I was a little bit frustrated. Because of: no feedback is the "worst" feedback.
    And like I said before, your question isn't easy to answer. To check the difficult you can start with this little snippet:
    var aDoc = app.activeDocument;
    //var pI = aDoc.pageItems;
    //var pILen=pI.length;
    // please select some items before running this script snippet
    var pI = aDoc.selection;
    var pILen=pI.length;
    var item;
    for (i=0;i<=pILen-1;i++) {
        item = pI[i];
        $.writeln("item "+i+":  "+item.typename);
        $.writeln("clipped =  "+item.clipped);
        if (item.typename == "PathItem") {
            // if GroupItem --> loop through the groupItems.pathItems
            // if CompoundPathItem --> loop through the CompoundPathItems.pathItems
            $.writeln(item.fillColor)
            $.writeln(item.strokeColor)
            $.writeln(item.filled)
            $.writeln(item.fillColor.color)
            if (item.filled == true && item.fillColor.typename == "CMYKColor" ) {
                alert("item "+i+"  fillColor:  "+item.fillColor.typename);
            if (item.stroked == true && item.strokeColor.typename == "CMYKColor" ) {
                alert("item "+i+"  strokeColor:  "+item.strokeColor.typename);
    Please select some items before running this script snippet (otherwise it may takes a long time).
    And please, check your JavaScript console in ESTK after running this script.
    I know, this can't be a correct answer, but perhaps this is a little bit helpful for the beginning.

  • Problem with replacing colour in posterised image

    Hello,
    I am looking for help with a problem I am havng in trying to create a Warhol type poster image
    I have scanned in a B & W image as a tiff file(epson v750 pro).
    I have then opened the image in CS4.
    then used the poster edge filter.
    I have then have to clone large areas to clean it up (remove speckels to clean the image to get large areas to white).
    I want to then replace the white area (already cleaned to get it to white) with yelow for example. I have  change the mode from greyscale to RGB to allow me to add colours.
    I can select the colour replace tool and select my colour(Colour picker tool, yellow).
    But the image is not taking the colour. Nothing is being painted on the image.
    I have tried so many times. some times I am getting the replacing colour on only about half of the image (going left to right). It still leaves
    I thought thi smight have had something to do with the cloning action. but the half of the image that takes the colour has large parts of it cloned to white.
    It is not possible to clone the image before using the poster filter as there is no true white in it.
    I am under a bit of pressure to have this completed by Friday for a Birthday party.
    Any help greatly Appreciated.
    Many Thanks
    k.

    You didn't really say how many colors you needed to make it. There are a couple of ways to do this, some are destructive and others are non-destructive.
    I assume the shades of gray are quite distinct. The more contrast between the shades the easier it is to select the shades.
    First option is destructive - Select all of one shade, then hit shift-backspace both keys on right side of keyboard. This will bring up the fill dialog box. here you can select a color and click ok then the selected areas will have that color.
    Second way non-destructive. Create a new layer and fill it with the color that you want, createanother layer and fill that one and so on untill you have all the colors that you need.
    Now select the layer the image is on and create your first selection of one of the shades. Click on the layer that has the color that you want. Next click on the icon at the bottom of the layer panel that looks like a circle inside a square. You selection should now disappear and a new icon on the layer of that color.
    Repat for each color.
    If the colors are blocking your imsge which odds are they will be, click on the eye icon on the color layer to temporarally make it not visible. And repeat for any layer blocking your view. Clicking the where the eye was will make it visible again.
    The second way may seam more difficult, but once you have the selections done for each color layer, it is a simple process to change the color at any time or remove that layer all together or better yet click the eye. The point is once the hard work is done should you change your mind, it is extremely simple to change latter on. As long as you save your file to include layers you can change this any time later on. Both tiff and psd allow you to save layers.
    An additional option: if your image as a texture or other details that you want to keep, change the blend mode on that colors layer from normal to color or hue. You might even want to try out some of the other blend modes and see how they effect your image. Doing this step to an image with details will make it more beleiveable. In fact option two and this step is the way to go if there are details in the image as with out blending, or reducing the opacity of the color layers, it would look like a color by number.

  • When I open my image, it is covered with tiny coloured dots.  how do I turn off this view?

    when I open my image, it is covered with tiny coloured dots.  how do I turn off this view? i've used photoshop for years and never encountered this.  i looked at the histogram for some means of turning it off, but no luck.  help

    The issue I think is connected to the colour profile, and the 8,16, or 32 bit image mode option.  In the past, my images have come from lightroom as 16 bit files and I've never had any issues.  I guess I'm not very adept at the file handling aspect of this program.  I shoot in RAW and like to play around with my photos, then print them.  I was under the impression I should be using the srgb colour selection not RGB, but then I've read I should change it to RBG once I'm ready to save the file to print.  I also changed my files over the 8 bit from 16 once I saved the after using photoshop.

  • Need some help with the colour profile please. Urgent! Thanks

    Dear all, I need help with the colour profile of my photoshop CS6. 
    I've taken a photo with my Canon DSLR. When I opened the raw with ACDSee, the colour looks perfectly ok.
    So I go ahead and open in photoshop. I did nothing to the photo. It still looks ok
    Then I'm prompt the Embedded Profile Mismatch error. I go ahead and choose Discard the embedded profile option
    And the colour started to get messed up.
    And the output is a total diasater
    Put the above photo side by side with the raw, the red has became crimson!!
    So I tried the other option, Use the embedded profile
    The whole picture turns yellowish in Photoshop's interface
    And the output is just the same as the third option.
    Could someone please guide me how to fix this? Thank you.

    I'm prompt the Embedded Profile Mismatch error. I go ahead and choose Discard the embedded profile option
    always use the embedded profile when opening tagged images in Photoshop - at that point Photoshop will convert the source colors over to your monitor space correctly
    if your colors are wrong at that point either your monitor profile is off, or your source colors are not what you think they are - if other apps are displaying correctly you most likely have either a defective monitor profile or source profile issues

  • How to create a front panel display that lights up with different colours depending on its input signal?

    I am doing a project where I have this array which has different voltage outputs for each grid. How do I create a front panel object that lights up with different colours depending on the voltage input or is there already such a pre-built function?
    In addition, I wish to display these in an array on screen. Is there any pre-built function for this?

    The simplest way would be an intensity graph. It gives you a 2D grid where each grid point is colored according to the value of a 2D array. The Z axis color ramp determines the color.
    My second choice would be an array of colorboxes. (They could even be made to look like LEDs (see image, if course you can leave them square too), All you need is a scaling function thap maps voltages into a color ramp lookup table with an 8bit index)
    (Using booleans and color property nodes is relatively clumsy. Booleans are meant for two states because the value is boolean. Since array elements can only differ in value, and not in properties, it will not even work. Color boxes have a color data type which is much more appropriate for this case)

  • Having problems with Spot Colour gradients

    Hello All,
    I have little experience in dealing with spot colours.  I'm trying to blend two spot colours for a print job.  Unfortunately the spot colour gradient (left image) does not blend like the process colour gradient (right image).  Instead they fade to a lighter colour in the center where they meet.  I'm sure someone out there can help as I think this is more of a technical issue that I am simply unfamiliar with.  Thank you in advance to all comments!
    Hugues

    Hello, i run into this all the time.
    What you can do is actually make one spot color overprint (or darken, or multiply) on top of another one.
    that will work,
    What I see you have is one spot color at one end  and another spot color at the other, where they meet you get the "grey".
    The 4/c gradient is a blend of the C<M<Y<K, inks.
    I usually rant over the fact that Illustrator does not have an Ink Manager, to make a swatch of 2 (or more ) spotcolors.
    As far as color gamut goes, 4/c color printing is so passe, right.
    Till Adobe recognizes that printers print with more than the 4/c color space, hexacolor, opaltone, optimized 7, and 8 we just have to improvise.

  • Marking words with background colour, the colour disappears when making pdf. How to do?

    Hi, I am working with a project that needs to highlight certain word or phrases with different colours. I use the background colour option to do this, but when making a pdf, the colour disappears. How do I get this to work? FM10 unstructured.
    JW

    Unfortunately, this doesn't work in FM10 (or 11) using the CMYK settings - you have to use RGB and convert the colours either in the PDF (with tools like Enfocus' PitstopPro) or during the postscript stage with a tool like PubliPDF (see: Grafikhuset Publi PDF for GPL licensed freebie version; usage details and other info is available at: Welcome to Grafikhuset Publi PDF ).
    You could also try using the CMYK joboptions setting in the RGB mode to see if you get an acceptable conversion (however be aware that any graphics and images in the documents may be affected). You should also set GetLibraryColorRGBFromCMYK=None to prevent FM from trying to do unnecessary colour conversions.
    The background colour feature works correctly in the CMYK mode starting only with FM12.

  • Help with Part Coloured B&W Photos

    Hi Guys,
    I am a bit of a novice with PE 8 and was wondering is someone could give me a few clues where to begin with part colouring a b&w photo.
    What I would like to do is take a picture of a stndalone tree that is in blossom. I want the tree trunk and branches in b&w along with the background but want the blossom to remain in its natural colour.
    Like I say I don't really know where to begin some clues would be very much appreciated.
    Regards,
    Den

    image23,
    Open picture
    Duplicate background layer
    Open a hue/saturation adjustment layer above this. To do this, click on the black/white circular icon at the bottom of the layers palette
    Slide the saturation slider all the way to the left
    On the adjustment layer, left click the layer mask (the white rectangle)
    Set your foregrond color chip (lower left) to black
    Access the brush tool and with the black brush paint where you want the color to appear
    TIPS:
    If you go too far, paint with a white brush to correct
    The bracket keys [ & ] can be used to alter the brush size

  • Converting greyscale images to single spot colour

    Hi there.
    I’m trying to convert a greyscale image into a single spot colour image. The spot colour is PMS425C, a grey version but as I’m only printing 2 colours I need to convert these images into one spot colour.
    Can somebody please assist?
    Thanks

    Did you see the monotone separated into cmyk?  If so, you may not be making the PDF correctly and the spot is being converted. It can still have cmyk channels but they are empty and will not end up as plates.  Check your output to PDF settings and make sure in the ink manager that spots are retained.  Also, there is more than one way to view in output preview which can be confusing at first.
    You should be exporting as PDF X/1a and if your settings are correct, when you view in output preview (separations)  in Acrobat, you should see the spot as spot.
    Try saving your monotone as .psd too many other formats will not support the monotone.  If you view separations in ID, you will be able to see if your file actually supports spot colour.

  • Problem with calendar colour categories in iOS 7

    We are running Exchange Server 2007 SP3 and Outlook 2007 SP3. I have an iPhone 5 running iOS 7.0.4 connected to my Exchange account. When I edit items in Outlook and change the colour category, the updated item appears on my phone. However if I make a change to the updated item on my phone, the updated item appears in Outlook but with a different colour category.
    Here's how I can replicate the issue:
    In Outlook, create a new calendar appointment with the RED colour category labelled "Test 1"
    The appointment "Test 1" appears on my iPhone
    In Outlook, change the appointment "Test 1" label to read "Test 2" and change the colour category to GREEN
    The updated appointment "Test 2" appears on my iPhone
    On the iPhone, make any change to the appointment "Test 2" and save the changes
    The updated appointment appears in Outlook, but with two colour categories selected when there should only be one
    It's almost like the iPhone is picking up the colour category when the item is created, but if the item changes, the colour category value on the iPhone is not replaced with the new one. When the item is pushed back to Exchange, the category value differs from Exchange and is appended to the item on Exchange, thus resulting in two different categories.
    This problem can be replicated on the iPhone 5 and iPad 4, on every user account.
    I would appreciate any help on this one.
