CorelDRAW X6 :: Convert CMYK To Pantone

Jun 29, 2013

I have a client that gave me some artwork created in CMYK with plenty of half tones.  Unfortunately, it breaks down into 1558 colors.  We need to convert it to Pantone for screen printing.  The whole thing can be reduced to 6 colors without changing the look.  Is there a process that will automatically convert the CMYK colors to close matching Pantone colors without going through each individual color and halftone, which would take forever..

Illustrator Scripting :: Convert Inks To Pantone Color Bridge CMYK

Nov 11, 2011

I work with a large number of Illustrator files daily that all use the Pantone Solid Coated library for their swatch color scheme. This color library will be used whether customers provide the art pieces or if I design the pieces for them.
 
However, I have found that in order to best match our digital press we must to convert the inks to the Pantone Color Bridge CMYK PC library before printing. 
 
Basically the same color number just the different library (eg  PMS 200C would convert to PMS 200PC if outputing in-house to the digital press).
 
My question - is it possible to create a script that would swap out all the colors in a document (that are in a specific library) with the same colors from a different library?
 
*More specifically what I am wanting to do is if I have a document that has a dozen solid coated colors swap them for their same numerical equivelant in the Color Bridge CMYK PC library.

Photoshop :: CMYK Pantone

Apr 9, 2009

My online printing outsource made a postcard containing my image and it came out about 1-1/2 stops too dark. When I questioned this I was advised as follows:"For best prediction of color output on a 4 color offset press, please compare your CMYK percentages with an industry-standard Pantone Process guide.">>This seems strange since a color image will have numerous different percentages of cmyk. I must be missing something. My friend who has the Pantone guide wants me to specify a Pantone number for use in comparing the image. I don't see how this can work for the same reasons (different colors, different percentages).>>The easiest solution I can think of is simply to brighten the image the next time I order postcards from this printer.>>

Photoshop :: Mixing Pantone Colors - Just Like CMYK Channels?

Oct 31, 2013

What I'd like to do [in photoshop] is treat 4 pantone colors just like CMYK channels. What I mean by that is that I would like to replace Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black with my own colors [pantone colors] and have them mix and act exactly like those channels. As in, when I open a full color image, and my pantone [or any color] channels or color profile is active, the full color image will react to those colors [with the blending of the colors].
 
Instead of 45% Cyan, 55% Magenta, 83% Yellow, and 2% Black in a given spot, it would be a mix of the 4 chosen colors [example: 45% pantone A, 55% Pantone B, 83% Pantone C, 2% Pantone D].
 
or to put it another way, if I were to color the background in, say, a blue, I would be able to use the "Info" panel to see how much of each pantone color was mixed to create that color. Obviously there would be a limit to the colors I could create based on the pantone colors I select.
 
I don't want to do anything printing wise with this technique. I am looking at it solely as an on screen viewer or perhaps use it in some manner for screen printing.

Photoshop :: Necessary To Convert Photos From RBG To CMYK

May 15, 2013

I am using InDesign for a class presentation. I was told I should convert any Photoshop images that I use from RGB to CMYK for printing, but I am just printing it at home on my little desk-jet.
 
Second question: If it IS necessary, why do I get a alert in Photoshop saying "You are about to convert to CMYK using 'U.S. Web Coated (SWOP) v2' profile.
