Hi I work as a textile designer using illustrator and draw designs in flat colour.
Is there a way in Illustrator to read the percentages of each colour swatch within a design?
BY this I mean If there is a design with 3 colour swatches of red, black and white can it tell me the precentage of each swtach within the illustration?
If I saved my drawing as an image is there any program I can use to read the precentage of each colour block?
I forgot to mention I am currently using Illustrator CS3
You could export the doc to Photoshop as layers, create layer selections in PS, then use the histogram to get the pixel counts and then calculate the percentages...
Yes you may check your colours values in colour swatch panel located in right side in your design workspace, when you click an object that has some color values your swatch panel tells you the value or you can also use eyedroper tool to check your values in info panel by pressing ctrl+F8
