Photoshop :: Color All Screwed Up, Ps7, OsX

Nov 29, 2004

I found the "nightmare" post with replies and was hopeful that I'd found a solution. I tried the calibration thing but it didn't work for me.

I'm having a similar problem. One day color was working fine and the next all the colors are off. Don't know what I did to cause this. I had recently installed acrobat standard v5.5. The color window has the color rainbow but it doesn't have the smooth transistions. It's choppy and harsh in appearance.

I deleted the preferences. [command][option][shift] at application launch.

I reinstalled photoshop.

Photoshop :: Eyedropper Tool Screwed?

Dec 31, 2003

when I select a colour with the eyedropper tool, isn't the corresponding colour supposed to be set to the foreground colour? But mine sets it to the background colour so I have to switch it around when I want to use it - trust me, big hassle.

Photoshop :: Rendering Multiple Layers - Shadows Screwed Up

Jan 1, 2013

Why takes the rendering of only 1 layer with 3 letters (incl shadows) over 37 days on a pc with a  3770K, 16gb ddr3 1600, 550/550 SSD and GTX670 2GB....this can't be right....
and when I want to render multiple layers, will it be possible to render them at once instead of layer by layer? If I merge them somehow the shadows are screwed up....

AutoCAD 2013 :: Visibility States All Screwed Up

Apr 3, 2012

I work with a lot of blocks that use visibility states. I've immediately found that editing these in 2013 is impossible because of a bug. When I'm on "Visibility State 1"and select "Visibility State 2" from the drop down, the state just reverts back to "Visibility State 1". The actual block will change and my drawing from "State 2" will show up, but the drop down still lists "State 1". So, when I try to Make Visible an object (in order to put it on "State 2" which is currently visible on my screen), the object is put on "State 1". This needs fixed IMMEDIATELY. This makes Autocad 2013 worthless to my firm.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 :: Apply Color To Selected Objects Without Having To Search For Color In Color Palette

Mar 13, 2012

Is there a way to apply a color to selected objects without having to search for the color in the color palette. So say if I am working with an image that has multiple colors but want to use only one of the colors in that image, is there a way to apply it without having to create or add it to the palette.

Photoshop :: How To Sample Color From Image And Apply To Encore Menu Color Sets

Aug 6, 2013

I'm about 3 months and many hours of tutorials into Premiere ProCC, Audition CC, and Encore CS6. Apparently the nifty dynamic links from PPro and Audition CS6 no longer work with encore, as encore was not upgraded to CC. So,

I want to sample color from an original Photoshop image, and create an Encore menu color set, so that my menu buttons, etc. are colored to match the main photo image in the menu. Is there an eyedropper kind of tool in Encore that would let me sample the color from the image, and then apply that to color swatches in the Encore button layers?

Photoshop Elements :: Could Not Use Color Replacement Tool - Only Works In Full Color Mode

Feb 19, 2013

I have a PSD file open and I added a new layer via the copy command.  I have added a Layer Mask to the new layer and I'm trying to use the Brush Tool with black forground to cover part of the new layer.  I'm following an online tutorial step by step, but when I try to use the Brush Tool I get "could not use color replacement tool because it only works in full color mode".  The Image>Mode is set to RGB.

Photoshop Elements :: MS (Color Dialogue Box) Popping Up Instead Of (Adobe Color Picker) Inside PSE 10

Dec 9, 2012

--Toolbox: The 2 columns of Tools on the left side of the Editor screen.

--Foreground Color & Background Color: The color filled squares at the bottom of the Toolbox.

--Color dialogue box: This is the pop-up that is labeled at the top with "Color". It shows 48 different color squares (6 rows by 8 columns); they are labeled "Basic colors:". Right below the "Basic colors:" array is another 16 empty squares (2 rows by 8 columns) to be filled with colors to be defined. There is a "Define Custom Colors>>" button when clicked opens up a color picker with HSB RGB stacked below the color field screen. See this link to the Microsoft "Color Dialogue Box", [URL]

--Adobe Color Picker: The interactive dialogue box with the color field screen to the left and the HSB RGB numbers stacked on the right side.


The problem:In PSE 10, when using the Eyedropper Tool or clicking on the Foreground Color or the Background Color, the Microsoft Microsoft "Color Dialogue Box" pops up instead of the "Adobe Color Picker" dialogue box. This started about a month ago. I use Windows 7.
I want the "Adobe Color Picker" to pop up (like it used to) inside PSE 10.

Photoshop :: RGB 48bit Color Versus SRGB 24bit Color For Scanning Documents And Resolutions

Dec 30, 2012

I have alot of paper that I want to reduce & eliminate, I have a bunch of certificates, magazine/newspaper clippings that I have from high school & college to scan & would like to know what color settings would be best.
I also have a bunch of brochures, other odd papers, receipts, & handwritten notes.
I am using an Epson perfection photo 4490 flatbed scanner, on a mac running lion 10.7.5.
I would also like to know what would be the best resolution to use.
I read a little about bit depth, & from what I gather, the human eye can only see so many colors, & going with bigger color depths is good where one has to do alot of editing.
most of these items are for records & archives, & maybe to be able to print from the scans, so I can throw out some of my paper.Also, when I scan in Adobe RGB, would it be best to use 48 bit depth to go with the fuller color? & when I use sRGB use 24 bit depth?

Photoshop :: How To Fix Color Picker To Work Across Different Color-managed Monitors

Apr 17, 2013

I'm assuming this problem I'm having stems from having color-calibrated monitors, but let me know if I'm wrong!
To preface, this is the setup I have:

Windows 73 monitors as follows, all have individual color profiles calibrated using the Spyder 3Cintiq 12WX Dell U2410Dell 2409WFPPhotoshop CS6 - Proofed with Monitor RGB, and tested with color-managed and non-color-managed documents . I usually do most of my work on the Cintiq 12WX, but pull the Photoshop window to my main monitor to do large previews and some corrections. I noticed that the color picker wouldn't pick colors consistently depending on the monitor the Photoshop window is on.
Here are some video examples:

This is how the color picker works on my Dell U2410:


This is how it works on my Cintiq 12WX:

Main Question

I know the Cintiq's video capture makes the picture look more saturated than the Dell's, but it actually looks fine physically, which is okay. But notice how the Cintiq's colour picker doesn't pick a matching colour. It was actually happening the opposite way for a while (Dell was off, Cintiq was fine), but it magically swapped while I was trying to figure out what was going on.
Semi-related Question regarding Color Management

Color management has always been the elephant-in-the-room for me when I first tried to calibrate my monitors with a Spyder colourimeter years ago. My monitors looked great, but Photoshop's colors became unpredictable and I decided to abandon the idea of calibrating my monitors for years until recently. I decided to give it another chance and follow some tutorials and articles in an attempt to keep my colors consistent across Photoshop and web browsers, at least. I've been proofing against monitor color  and exporting for web without an attached profile to keep pictures looking good on web browsers. However, pictures exported as such will look horrible when uploaded to Facebook. Uploading pictures with an attached color profile makes it look good on Facebook. This has forced me to export 2 versions of a picture, one with an attached color profile and one without, each time I want to share it across different platform. Is there no way to fix this issue?
Pictures viewed in Windows Photo Viewer are also off-color, but I think that's because it's not color managed... but that's a lesser concern.

Photoshop :: Replacing Object Color With Specific Swatch Of Color

Jun 10, 2013

I have a colored object, and I have a specific swatch of color that I need to change the current color of the object to. The problem I'm having is that the specific color that I'm trying to apply to the object doesn't look integrated with the object itself, it just looks like I've applied a color film over it. It's milky-looking and there's not enough contrast. I've tried adjusting levels, using different blending modes, using the Match Color command ..I can't seem to keep the integrity of the color I'm applying to the object, while still keeping the integrity of the details of the object itself. How should I tackle this using multiple layers and blending modes, and so the new color looks integrated and believable?

Photoshop :: Which Color Mode In CS4 Is Best To Use For 2-color Project / Grayscale Or CMYK

Mar 21, 2012

The project is a photo montage. It was 4-color, now must become 2 colors. So I've changed each of the original 4-color photos (jpg and eps) into separate psd files (as grayscale/duotone/montage-and assigned it One pantone color)
In a new psd "montage"  file, I plan to place each photo on its own layer, adjust tints, transparency, etc, to  create one new montage/flattened.I'm not sure which color mode is best when setting up this new file, CMYK or grayscale?
Once the PS  doc is done, the job will be saved as a PDF for 2-color printing.I want to insure the 2 pantone colors separate properly at press.

Photoshop :: Color-picker Selecting Background Color Instead Of Foreground?

May 19, 2012

You know how when you're painting, you can hold ALT and it will pick a colour from the canvas? Well, for some reason, mine still picks up the colour but it sets it to the background colour instead of the foreground colour.

And when I actually select the colour picker tool, it will only select the background colour but when I hold Alt, it selects the foreground colour. Basically it's flipped where it's supposed to select.

Photoshop :: Color Doesn't Work - Fill Sun With Proper Color (red)?

I took a photo of the sunrise. The sun was very "red" from forest fire smoke. But when I looked at the photo later the sun had lost its "red" (due to the brightness of the sun). restore the sun color as I saw it?

Below is the photo I want changed and the next photo (not mine) is approx. the color I saw the sun as (perhaps a little redder). I want "my" sun filled with that color.

Is there anyway to transform a 4-color picture into a 2-color one at reasonably good quality?

The problem I met is at the galley.I could, or migh, only be able to get a 2-color printer at reasonably good price.

The original design is 4-color. But the actual detail is not very important.They are book covers, which only need to protect the book.

Photoshop :: Creating A Color Table For Print, Color Standards

Mar 20, 2007

I was wondering what is the best way to save a photoshop file such as a business card or stationary labels so they "KEEP" their color you see on screen.

I am already building in CMYK mode. My Client has a nice gray scale scheme but I am worried that the print shop will mess up the colors.

How do I create a custom set of colors and adhere to that scheme throughout the clients stationary and media.
ie. Cards, Labels, Signs, etc.

Is there an option to print a color scale along with the image, sorta like when you calibrate your printer?

Photoshop :: Calculate Percentage Of A Color!! (know The Total Amount Of A Certain Color)

Nov 22, 2005

How do you know the total amount of a certain color from an image (in percent%)?
Is there a way to calculate it?

Let's say I have an image with a white background and a red figure.
If the whole painting is 100%, what's the percentage of the white background
or the red figure?
I need to know how to calculate this (accurate)

I make paintings with only 2 colors (a 'background color' and the 'main color')
To put an objective price on my paintings I decided to calculate the amount
of 'main color' (or background color) and base my prices on this information.
This is the only way I could price my art fairly an objective.
