    Fireworks CS6 on Mavericks: bad color matching

    creativecomponent

      I've just spent the morning telling a client that they must be crazy— the fact that when opening their logo in Fireworks, and sampling the color to build matching elements— the color isn't... *OOPS, oh crap*... matching.

       

      Not only when opening images in CS6, but taking screenshots of anything on-screen (with default OSX screenshot -or- any screenshot app) is giving me bad results in Fireworks.

       

      Try this:

       

      1. Go to the following site: http://www.colorhexa.com/59136b

       

      2. Download the main image there ( http://www.colorhexa.com/59136b.png )

       

      3. Open it up in Fireworks CS6 on Mavericks.

       

      4. Either using the background eyedropper, or create a new rectangle and use that eyedropper, sample the 59136b.png image.

       

      5. For me, Fireworks says this image color is #5A0B6D.

       

      (I've attached 59136b.png here too)
