Lesson 6. Working with Color > Adding colors to the Swatches palette

Adding colors to the Swatches palette

You can add color to objects using a combination of palettes and tools. The InDesign CS2 color workflow revolves around the Swatches palette. Using the Swatches palette to name colors makes it easy to apply, edit, and update colors for objects in a document. Although you can also use the Color palette to apply colors to objects, there is no quick way to update these colors, called unnamed colors. Instead, you’d have to update the color of each object individually.

You’ll now create most of the colors you’ll use in this document. Since this document is intended for a commercial press, you’ll be creating CMYK process colors.
