Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding transparency with paragraph and object styles, part of Designing a Calendar.
My next step is going to be, to create the…month text, this text here, which uses a transparency effect.…Prior to that, I'm also going to create the color…palette and the color palette goes from the cold…of winter, to the green of spring to the…golden yellow of summer and to the rust of fall.…So those are the 4 colors that we want to create.…I'm going to come to my swatches…panel, and choose new color swatch.…And these are the values, that I am going to be using.…
First of all, I want to name the colors for the seasons, so I'm going to uncheck…name with color value and we'll begin with winter And it's values are…68, zero, 31, 10.…Add Spring and I realize, I have that frame, selected there.…I won't worry about that, that's applying the color to that selected element.…
Spring is 75, 0, 100, 10. Summer is 5, 10, 100, 5 and Fall; 16, 69,…100, 10. And all of these…are process colors,…made up of CMYK.…So now, I'm just going to tap my forward slash,…to make sure that, the color is not applied to that selected frame.…
