That way i could try more and more color pallates on the documents instead of changing the colors one by one.

Hi

I didn't watch the video, but here are the instructions for both Photoshop and Illustrator (since I don't know which you will be using). In both cases, go the the menu in the Swatches panel (the four lines in the upper right):

 

Illustrator:

Swatches panel menu > Open Swatch Library > Other Library > (navigate to .ase file)
It opens as a library; click to add swatches to current document, then put into a group (folder) for use with Recolor Artwork.

 

Photoshop:

Swatches panel menu > Import Swatches > (navigate to .ase file)

Starting in PS 2020, a new folder is created automatically.

Do you want to turn all of your blue fills red, or change the color spectrum of a whole page or document with one control? If the former, you could use object styles. If the latter, I don't know.

No i want to download an ASE file (from coolors.co for example) and have a complete pallate group on swatch window, up until here it's all achevable. and then i want to apply this pallate group on some shapes.

 

Then if i download a new pallate group, i want to apply it for those shapes in one click. i'm sure there is an option like that. just not sure indesign has it.

Are you thinking something similar to the Recolor Artwork feature in Illustrator?

If so, it doesn't exist in InDesign, but you can ask for a feature request:

Hi

Do you have Illustrator? You didn't say.

 

It would take an hour to show all you can do with Recolor Artwork, and you might want to find some videos to learn more if you go this route.

 

To start, though, ASE stands for Adobe Swatch Exchange, and can be opened in the Swatches panel in Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign. In Illustrator, make the Swatches a color group if they are not already in preparation for the next step.

 

Then select the artwork you want to change, open the Recolor Artwork dialog, and click on the Swatch group to change the colors.

 

This is a very simple "starter" answer.

Thanks

right now it seems that my obsticale is your import ASE into "swatches" window.

i'm able to do it, but look how it's done, i'm sure there is a shorter way then that:
