Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Using swatches, part of InDesign CS3 Long Documents.
In this movie we are going to look at how we can combine InDesign with Illustrator…where we can create swatches using our fantastic new feature of Illustrator CS3 called Color Guide to create a color group,…a series of colors that relate to each other based upon rules of color harmony and the rules that we are going to look…at how we can have those images be derived from a specific image and the image I'm going to use is this one right here.…Now in InDesign I would be restricted to just sampling a specific color using my Eyedropper tool and then if I wanted…to have other related colors, it would all be extremely subjective and may end up not looking so great.…
If you are like me, I'm not that hot when working with colors.…So I'm going and put my trust in Illustrator and go to Illustrator where I will create a new print document…and then I'm going to place that image in Illustrator.…Now this image is in the photos folder, which is in the travel brochure folder.…So I'm going to scroll down until I find it and that's the one we are after, Guatemala_07. I will place it right there.…
