Color management nightmare

Recommended Posts


I cannot get Illustrator to produce the same spot colors on screen as in Photoshop. I use Pantone Warm Red in all corporate collateral and the color swatch in Illustrator appears to be orange but in Photoshop it is truer to the original spot. I just purchased Eye-One Design to help remedy the problem but after calibrating and applying color management to the OS (Windows XP) and within the applications (Adobe - synchronized through Bridge)the color in Illustrator still looks the same. I do get a redder color when printing from Illustrator after applying the color profile but the screen image is still orange. This affects files I send off for web. What am I doing wrong???

I appreciate any feedback!
