Spot color to rgb?

Post by whittingtona » Wed Jan 10, 2018 1:09 am

Hi is a fast or easy way to change spot colors to rgb for viewing online?
I know about the find and replace but still time consuming
Is there a setting or something to make thing faster

You can always read the RGB values in CorelDraw for example:

You don't need to convert anything. A screen will never look like a printout, it's not possible due to physics. Making a picture of a printout of a picture is even farther from truth of the original photo.

The best thing to do in this situation is to load the (colour-faulty) jpg into PhotoPaint or something similar, then click on 'adjust' in the menu bar (top of screen). On the drop down menu that appears, select: 'hue/saturation/lightness'. The slider controlling 'hue' can then be moved to the left or right with the erroneous (or master) colour/s selected, and this will alter its hue. Move the slider in small increments, or the colours will change entirely! Save the new image to file.

Good luck with it.
