    synchronize color

    jrough Level 1

      I have photoshop photos.  The color settings in Photoshop are:

      RGB:sRGB IEC61966-2.1

      CMYK  U.S. Web Coated (SWOP)v2

      gray: dot gain 20%

      spot dot gain 20%

      RGB: preserve embedd profiles

      cmyk: preserve embedded profiles

      gray: preserved embedded profiles


      In Illustrator I have some of the same settings except the last one:

      Settings:North America General Purpose 2,

      RGB: sRGB IEC61966-2.1,

      CMYK: U.S. Web Coated (SWOP)v2

      RGB: preserve Embedded Profiels

      CMYK Preserve Numbers(Ignore Linked Profiles


      Is this what the setting in Illustrator is supposed to be?

      I didn't synch it between Photoshop and Illustrator.  It says your creative suite applications are synchronized using the same color settings for consistent color management in Illustrator but I never synched it at least I don't remember doing it.


      When I go to Adobe Bridge the Suite Color Management menu  says "Suite Color Management is not enabled" in the bridge.  It seems like it is enabled since Illustrator and Photoshop have the same settings?    Do I need color management turned on in the Bridge?  It appears I can't change it.  It probably isn't necessary would that be used for Dreamweaver?


      Since I am designing for the web should I turn off anything related to CMYK in Illustrator or leave it as is?  I didn't create these settings.  The photos have preserve settings embedded in them and when I opened them in Illustrator they preserved the settings.  Is there a way to preserve the color swatches from Photoshop as a color combination in Illustrator so I have the same color scheme?
