Lesson 6. Working with Color > Exploring on your own

Exploring on your own

Follow these steps to learn more about importing colors and working with gradients.

1.
To create a new document, choose File > New > Document, and then click OK in the New Document dialog box.

2.
To import the colors from a different InDesign CS2 document, use the following procedure:

  • Use the Swatches palette menu and choose New Color Swatch.

  • In the Color Mode drop-down menu, select Other Library and browse to find the Lesson_06 folder.

  • Double-click 06_Color.indd (or 06_b.indd). Notice that the colors you created earlier in this lesson appear in this dialog box list for the new document.

  • Select the Brown/Tan Gradient and click OK to close the dialog box and add the color to the Swatches palette.

  • Repeat this entire process a few more times to add other colors to the Swatches palette.

3.
Using the lesson files or your own InDesign CS2 document, double-click the color swatch Paper and change its composition. Notice how the color of the document changes to reflect the color of the paper on which the document will be reproduced.
