Default Struggling with Photoshop...

As usual, I'm having to tweak some artwork that's been sent in, but I'm really not a pro when it comes to Photoshop. He's told me the colour he wants is 0b131d: what's that in CMYK or RGB?

rgb(11,19,29)
There must be an easy way to find out in Photoshop. If you know about it of course!

It looks like a hex value, but its so low that it's almost black.

I like ColorSchemer software as well — have it on my Mac and on my iPod Touch. The software lets you scan a real-world item and capture the color for the computer — a decade ago that function required a special tool that cost lots of money.

Nice to see you here again.

After moaning about how my colours looked on his screen, the client finally took my advice yesterday and went into a high street printers to look up Pantone numbers for his two background colours. We then had the usual discussion about ICC profiles and uncalibrated minataurs, and I had to start reading the riot act at him until he calmed down.

He's now claiming that an image with process tints really is line art... I've had enough for now - I'm going outside to mow our lawn!
