Default Re: NDC 2011: Round 2 "Summer Afternoon"

Okay - I made my cluster - two actually - they are mostly made up of other parts of the kit. So if I used a flower both in the cluster, and I am giving it individually, does it need to appear in my preview as an individual element as well as part of the cluster? I know you said everything needs to be on the preview, but it would technically be there as part of the cluster. I just don't want the same flower to show 4-5 times because it's in the cluster and an individual piece.

vickilyn you just need to show the flower in the cluster if you are not using it individually.

Exclamation Re: NDC 2011: Round 2 "Summer Afternoon"

I've been having a problem with PS and now I'm worried it's going to slow me down more (I've already been greatly slowed down by my own indecision! ).

I can't figure out how this is happening so if anyone has had this experience and knows how I can fix it, please let me know!

The problem is this: my colors keep changing!

I know, I know, sounds odd but they are. I have my palette saved and loaded as an .aco file. And in the course of designing, I keep noticing that my greens are changing and I have to continually reload the .aco file - very inconvenient and annoying.

So, I'm making slow progress and because of other 'life' events, I'll most likely be submitting mine at the very last minute.

I've never had that happen to me either, Rose... very weird and frustrating! I'll see if I can find something on the problem out in webland when I get a spare second

It just gets weirder and I've still so much to do yet .

Check out this screenshot of my preview in progress.

All I did was move the items you see in the preview on the right side to the preview template we were given, on the left. The colors are different! You can especially see it in the leaves and the second paper from the left, it looks more blue than green on the left side than it does on the right.

If my elements all match when I'm finished, I think it'll be a miracle... if I finish... I might be up all night tonight.

Okay, this is a question that someone more experienced might have to answer. Could it be a variation becuase of the different color profiles within photoshop? If the preview file was created in one RGB profile and she is working in another one?? Does that make sense? It wouldnt explain the changes in the swatch file, but could it answer why the elements look different on the two previews?

If someone wants to peak at what I am talking about go to edit>color settings in PS.

I had thought of that myself but I don't think that's the case because I usually get a warning message when I try to copy something with into a document where the color modes are different. I've also verified that I'm working in RGB 8bit mode, the same as the template. But, like you said, we may need someone more experienced with the inner workings of the color mode stuff.

Thanks for offering that information though, maybe this will trigger a thought in someone else's head.

Rose, That's what I thought too. That it is the color profile. Off to ask a couple of my color experts to peek at this one.

Also, maybe try dragging the template into a paper from your kit to keep color integrity? And then adding the other papers & elements.

Wow, this was a lot of fun. I hope my kit is not too different from the others. I tried to stay true to a typical South African summer ... and hope you will like it too.

Here is the link to my entry:

Thanks for looking

Hmm maybe the color profile, I always work in sRGB IEC61966-2.1
you can assign that profile by going to edit>assign color profile

also check your general preferences tab for your color picker, HUD color picker

other than that maybe get someone to make a palette image for you so you can use the eyedropper
tool till you work out what the problem is.

have you tried resetting your preferences and all the usual things that you try when photoshop
becomes unstable?
