This is the first time I've experienced this issue. I select a color with the eye dropper tool, and then when I go to use the paint bucket tool, the color it dumps is a lighter color. I'm getting a flag that reads "Warning: Out of gamut for printing"

I need to make a CMYK document, but I'm experiencing the same issue whether I'm in CMYK or RGB. Document is needed in a few hours. HELP!!!

The Lounge Forum is not for technical help, please provide the name of the program you are using so your message may be moved to the correct program forum... A program would be Photoshop or Dreamweaver or Muse or Premiere Pro or ???

Having this issue with Photoshop. I'm totally lost in all of the threads and forums for troubleshooting support. (and now panicking) where/how can I fix this problem? do I need to completely uninstall and reinstall Photoshop?

Regarding the shift in color: confirm that the eyedropper sample size is not too large and including a lighter area and the Paint Bucket Options bar is set to 100% opacity. Confirm the Mode is Normal, as well

sample field is definitely large enough. What's happening is I select a color, and then when I use the paint bucket tool, it dumps a different, duller version of the color I had picked.

I uninstalled and re-installed the Photoshop and am still having the same problem. (Never encountered this issue before)

I'm also seeing an exclamation point in a triangle next to my color field choice that reads "Warning: out of gamut for printing"

screenshot of the warning I'm seeing when I select a color. The top color is the one I want, the bottom color is the one the paint bucket tool dumps when I use it.

What color space is your document... cmyk or rgb? Guessing it is cmyk - change it to rgb and the exclamation point will go away. You only need to be in cmyk if your document is being printed and even then you can work in RGB and use the color conversion engine in Acrobat to convert when generating high resolution print pdfs.

Hello!

I recently had this same issue in Photoshop. I was finally able to fix the issue by going to the paint bucket "mode" on the top bar and I changed it from "vivid light" to "normal". It has worked great and hasn't given me a problem since I changed it. I hope this helps!

I know this is a 3 year old thread, but for anyone in the future here to fix this issue, like me:

MAKE SURE YOUR OPACITY IS 100% 

I spent what felt like 30 minutes perusing settings and changing things when my color opacity was set to 11%, make sure this isn't the case for you!Screenshot_47_LI.jpg
