I was just introduced to Kuler, and being excited for finding a new swatch archive, I tried downloading a few for a project I'm working on. When I open them, they try to open in Illustrator (my project is in photoshop) and Illustrator says that the file isn't compatable? I have the CS5 Creative suite. Any help would be very appreciated!
In Illustrator, from the Swatches palette pop-up menu, select Open Swatch Libraries > Other Libraries, and navigate to and select your saved .ase file. The file will open in a separate palette labeled with the theme name. To move these swatches to the Swatches palette, select the swatches you wish to move and, from the pop-up menu, select Add to Swatches. The swatch will be added to the Swatches palette.
In Photoshop or InDesign , from the Swatches palette pop-up menu, go to Load Swatches and navigate to your .ase file. Open the .ase file; your colors should appear in the Swatches palette.
