Hello fellow InDesigners 🙂
I want to view my colors in RGB mode. As you can see in the screenshot. The 2 colors are bright and in RGB but the square in my workspace is viewed in cmyk mode, it's not that bright. Anybody knows how to watch the colors in my workspace in rgb?
Thank you for your time 🙂
Sure. Go to the View>Proof Setup>Custom... menu command and change your proofing setup from the default (in the US, it's SWOP Coated v2, if you're using InDesign outside the country you may have a different default) and change it to the RGB model you'd like.
Hope this helps,
Thanks for you quick response. I've changed it to sRGB but it's still very dark and not the correct rgb color. I've also tried other RGB simulations like "Adobe RGB" and "Apple RGB" but it's still nog correct.
OK. A couple other things you may want to try:
Ultimately, you may decide that there's a point of diminishing returns for chasing all of this. That little yellow triangle to the left of your sample swatch on the Color panel defines Out of Gamut for CMYK print reproduction, but it also can indicate that you're pushing the envelope for colors you can get onscreen too. Your setup just may not be able to faithfully reproduce the eye-searing colors you want. Jus' sayin' ...
One more thing I might add: if when you create your document you set it up for Web reproduction, it automatically turns off the Overprint Preview option under the View menu and you get dedicated RGB display response across the board.
Just note that if the document’s Intent is Web you can still turn on Overprint Preview, or create CMYK swatches and colors—the Web Intent initially sets the default swatches and Transparency Blend Space to RGB, but any InDesign document lets you mix RGB, CMYK, and Lab colors, or change the blend space.
Turn off Overprint Preview. When Oveprint or Separation Preview are on, RGB colors are previewed in your document’s assigned CMYK space.
Also, InDesign has a Transparency Blend Space and if it is set to CMYK the spread will preview in the assigned CMYK space when there is any transparency or transparency effect on the spread.
Thank you! So I put "Proof setup" to sRGB and I turned off "Overprint Preview" and changed "Transparency Blend Space" to RGB.
It works perfect!
You don’t need to setup proof colors. Native RGB colors display in the document’s assigned RGB space and you already have that set to sRGB
