  • Question for retouching/print professionals

    I am currently working on images that contain a neon color.

    The client has given me this color information :

    Volt = 71R , Black = OOA

    Can anyone please explain what this information means?

    Thankyou for your time!

    The 1st color is not a technical standard. However Estee Lauder makes a Pure Gloss called Violet 71 Rebellious.
    Hewlett Packard makes a black printer cartridge called 00A.
    However, it might be more appropriate to request additional info from your client as those are not standad colors suc as the ones defined by Pantone or any color space.

      I agree with Murray. The client seems to have given you mismatched, generic color descriptions. Certainly no color model I am familiar with. the 00A is actually a Hex value you can type within your color picker window - and it is a dark black-ish tone, but I wouldn't trust it. 71R I can't find anywhere - not even in Adobe Illustrator's extensive color libraries. I would ask your client for clarification. Maybe they are paint chips?

        Hi all,

        I've recently gotten a bid at doing some retouching for a wedding photographer. I'm going to be working on a few images as a test of sorts to see if I get the gig or not.

        So, here's my question. My workflow currently involves opening the RAW files in ACR, doing...

        by kcole321
        Hope you can help me understand what I am doing wrong. Color management is a murky subject for me, at best!! I've been able to get the colors on my monitors (both a CRT and a laptop) to pretty closely match what I print on my HP inkjet printer. However, when I take my pictures to be printed (at the...

        I have bee messing around alot with the color picker, color sampler tool and Info palette lately. Now, for example if I have a very, very dull red which can be something like R=98 G=50 B=45, photoshop would categorize this as a red since the R value is the highest correct? I am asking this because when...
