I have an issue with a peculiar green (#98f7ab) and I would like to know why.
First I was working on InDesign v9. But I wasn't able to use the right green (see the image below) so I changed for Photoshop v14.
The difference is dramatic. So I first thought that it was due to different color spaces. I made the conversions and nothing get better.
I finally had to work with InDesign and add a touch of this color, hopping that it will be corrected when exported to pdf format. And the trouble became even more weird !
I obtain two different greens depending the zoom I choose in Acrobat Reader ! (It is not true in Indesign.)
What a mess !
Is there anyone who can explain what is going on here ?
If there's any transparency on the page make sure you Transparency Blend Space is RGB
I still don't get the right color on my screen in InDesign
The duller green is the preview of how the RGB green converts to the document's CMYK profile. The green you've chosen is not printable.
An RGB color is also forced into the CMYK color space if you have Overprint or Separation Preview turned on.
