FYI converting CL stuff to the print

Showing 1 - 9 of 9 Comments
Hey all, I've been using CL, quite successfully for print for over a year now. I must say that CL has been a job/life saver because I generally suck at colors. I'm just curious how other print people utilize this website. I my self will FN+Shift+4 the color square (Mac) and drag it into In design, I drop the colors into individual boxes and then convert via that way. Colors more or less stay the same.
I usually download the .ASE file and import into InDesign's swatch panel.
It imports as RGB, Is there a way that it can be imported CMYK?
None that I'm aware of, needs to be switched manually in InDesign...
I've used Colourlovers for print as well, and I usually choose colors from the Pantone Process Color book that look like what I'm seeing on screen.
I just started using colourlovers and have to say that the palette features are the easiest to use.
Love all the shades of blue.
That triumvirate of blues/purples is exquisite.

Since Aug 2018, I can longer upload or publish templates I create using Seamless Studio. In Seamless Studio, I'll create a template, and click on "Upload to Colourlovers," my browser opens a new tab to CL but it just goes to a blank Seamless Lite page, and I am not logged in on that page. This happens whether I am already signed in to CL or not.

When I used to "Upload to Colourlovers," a CL would open on the browser saying something like "we have your template but you need to sign in." I would sign in, and my template would be ready to publish.

Hello community! Could you let us know if you're still experiencing the issues with Recaptcha and the patterns? Please write to editor@colourlovers.com
It's easier for us to keep track of what needs to be fixed this way. Thanks! :)

Thank you so much!! And I fixed the login issue today-it was a stupid settings issue on my part, not a site bug.
