    Pantone conversions to cmyk don't match pantone color bridge

    reppert

      We are having issues at our plant with adobe not converting colors properly. Program using to send to our rip for a di press is Indesign cs6, tried cs5.5 and get the same values.

      Example pantone color is 293. We have the latest pantone + bridge and the color break down is 100c 69m 0y 4k but if you let adobe made all spots to process we get a value of 100c 80m 12y 3k.

      Any idea what is causing the incorrect values or what I can update to use the correct values?

      Thanks.

          HI,

           

          In order to get the best CMYK values from InDesign, set your CMYK working space (color settings or Assign ICC to your document) to your DI Press ICC profile.

          This way, InDesign will convert from Pantone’s Lab valur to the presse ICC profile’s CMYK values.

           

          CMYK numbers from Color Bridge + are made for european TVI (ISO standard), which is lower that North American standards.

           

          Hope this help!
