Ive gonbe to Kuler site and identified the perfect color in
one of the swatches. What's the best and/or quickest way for me to
grab that color and bring it into the PS CS4 file I have open? And
what's the best way to learn how to use Kuler, as I'm brand new to
it. Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving!
There are several ways you can bring the swatches into PS
1. You can save your theme publicly and then download it from
the Kuler panel in PS CS4 (found in menu Windows --> Extensions
--> Kuler). To download from the panel - go to browse mode, find
your theme, click on it, then click on the arrow on the right, and
select "Add to swatches panel."
2. You can download your theme from Kuler.adobe.com as an
.ase file and then open up the file in PS CS4 via the swatches
3. You can download your theme as an .ase file to your
desktop via the Kuler Desktop AIR application, and then open the
file from PS CS4 (select the "load swatches" command in your
swatches panel drop down list).
In terms of resources on how to use Kuler - There are a
number of videos provided by Adobe as well as by talented members
of the community. Check out tv.adobe.com as a place to start-
The Creative Suite Podcast video titled "Creative Suite Podcast -

There are also a number of other videos on YouTube and other
sites on the web that review how to get started with Kuler.
