    article - creating complimentary colour groups / colour matching images imported into Illustrator?

    Shenzi1

      greetings all.

      i have a number of pictures that i have imported into illustrator.

       

      some are live traced vector images
      some are bitmaps from photoshop

       

      here is my question. i want to take an image and create a swatch from the range of colours expressed in the image. alternatively i'd like a workflow that allows me to match complimentary colours to what is already there.

       

      i am pretty sure that it can be done via a live trace but often it doesnt give me all the colours i would like to use?
      are there any other ways in illustrator, 3 rd party programs or other recommendations that you recommend?

       

      thank you kindly
