My monitor does great with colors, but I cannot get photoshop or illustrator to show the bright colors in my new vector images. I have created hundreds of graphic designs in cs2 and cs1, and even some with cs4. I must have clicked on some setting somewhere... Help!
in this image, I am trying to get a pure bright blue, but it comes out muted. note the image I have "placed" has great color. it is just the solid color I am having trouble with....
As Mr. Maloney said.... You can spend all day trying to get bright colors, it won't do you any good because they will never print and that is exactly what PS shows you.. Print stuff must obey certain rules for ink densities and saturation plus of course it uses a different color blending model to begin with. Therefore "bright" colors must be simulated with opacities, be mixed from the individual CMYK colors using specific ratios (process colors) down to printing them with specific pure inks (spot colors --> Pantone etc.). If you do not want to print your designs commercially, simply convert to RGB mode, otehrwise you have some serious reading up to do...
