    OK, a client has given me a Pantone code: 281
    They say they want their site "that kind of colour"

    How on earth do I find out the RGB or CMYK colour of Pantone 281 ?????

    Thanks if ya can help

    If you're one of those people that has tons of cash you could pick up a pantone to process color guide...

    If not, all I do is select that color in photoshop (pantone 281) the using the eyedropper, look at the RGB values... in this case R=0 G=34, B=97.

    Now you'll have to let you're client know that this color could change dramatically depending on who's looking at it and how their monitor is set up... on a mac it will be way lighter, a pc way darker etc...

    Hope this helps.... basically if you have a swatch of the color just eyeball it (at the screen configuration you design at for the general populous)


    Cheers,

    I agree, Photoshop is the best way to go.
