Making Color Appear Consistent across Programs

Who among us has not been unpleasantly surprised when a graphic that looks perfect in one program turns out with completely different colors after being imported into another program? Mismatched color is, in fact, one of the most annoying problems in the graphic arts. Chapter 14 introduced you to color management, the industrywide effort under way to rectify this problem. That chapter talks about color management within Illustrator, but color management is most valuable when it solves the question of color across programs.

But if you think color management is a challenge to understand within just one program, it can be a real bear to deal with when you try to make different programs handle color the same way. Compared with the rest of the industry, Adobe has put an unusual amount of effort behind making color management useful to regular people like you and me, and Illustrator is now more integrated into Adobe's big color-management picture. As seen in Figure 23.14, Illustrator 10 uses the Color Settings dialog box that Adobe is adding to its professional graphics applications.
