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.
