    Why do Adobe Color CC and Indesign CC not convert CMYK to RGB the same?

    molinus56 Level 1

      I recently used Adobe Color CC to create a color theme that will be used for both print and web.  I created the theme with approved CMYK values with the intent of saving the .ASE file to be imported into other CC apps.  Corresponding RGB, Hex, Lab and HSB values are automatically created.  Of course, we are using CMYK for print and RGB for web

      A coworker had separately created the same exact CMYK theme in InDesign CC, and created RGB values from the same exact CMYK values I had used in Adobe Color.

       

      The InDesign RGB values are quite different from the Adobe Color values.

       

      Anyone know why the values are not the same, and moreover, which CMYK to RGB conversion values may be relied upon for accuracy?

       

      EDIT: I guess the real question should be, What are the color management settings built-in to Adobe Color CC, and can they be duplicated in desktop Adobe CC applications?

       

      Thanks very much
