    pantone plz help!

    Hey guys,

    I'm working with an InDesign file and I've spec'd a PMS color for the type but I guess it is a newer pantone color that i pulled from the book, it isn't preset in any of my Adobe apps.

    Could someone convert this to cmyk or something if you have access to colorbridge?

    Thank you so much in advance!

    I used the above site to find the color you asked about and put the rgb values into the program, then converted it to cmyk. I hope it helps.

    I'm sensing a slight bit of hair-standing-up-itus when I read your question, so I'm going to ask...

    This is obviously pre-press art. Are you supplying it as cmyk or is it something that uses spot color only (PMS) or cymk+spot? The reason I'm asking is that PMS often converts "dirty" when converted to the closest cmyk match, especially since you're going through a RGB conversion first.

    Thanks for the replies,

    It was somewhat for pre-press, but more to check the relationships between colors in indesign, which for some reason at the office doesn't have an updated pantone library > . I know looking at colors on screen is basically pointless (especially since our monitors are calibrated to our horible Xerox laser printers), but I wanted to see how much the colors separated.

    Ended up eyeballing and sending the pms colors to the printer, who will match and run some test prints.

    Thanks again!
