my question is, why do the pms colors change do a different pms color after you choose the one you want in photoshop.

for example when i pick the pms color: 138C, then use the eye dropper tool to see what color it is, it switches to 7413C.

287C switches to 653C.

it really causes confusion.

how am i supposed to know that the color i pick is really the color its going to print?

Welcome to the forum.

Unfortunately, it is not the one that you need. The Photoshop fora are HERE. Just choose the version/platform that you need and ask again. You will get help.

Good luck,
