I am creating a professional portfolio. I've been working on this problem for days, and nothing I try seems to work. It's a little bit hard to explain so I am posting a screen shot to aid in this discussion.
How can I get the background of my image to match the sidebar of my illustrator file? Tried to select background then paint the same color. But colors do not match. Do I need to make a transparent background somehow?
Is your image background REALLY 50%K or is it a build of CMYK to try and look like 50%k?
If you hover over the background in Photoshop what does the Info panel read? Are there CMY values in the info panel? That's not a 50%K then.
If you want 50% K in Photoshop, you need to add 50% to the K channel in Photoshop and not simply paint on 50%k.
Thank you Scott, you made me realize I am approaching this problem the wrong away. I am teaching myself the program, and just now disovered the erase background tool. Now it's able to match perfectly.
