Putting Colors to Work

Stop the Color Shifting

When I place an image that I know contains the same color as one of my InDesign swatches, the images color doesn't match other objects that use the swatch color.


Make sure InDesign's color management system is turned on (choose Edit > Color Settings) and make sure the settings are appropriate for the type of publication you're creating. Even if a placed image was created in a non-color managed program, InDesign will use its color settings to manage the screen preview. You may need to turn on View > Overprint Preview and View > Display Performance > High Quality Display for the best-looking EPS and PDF images. For more on color management, check out the book David wrote with Olav Martin Kvern, Real World InDesign, or Bruce Fraser's (et al) Real World Color Management.
