Photoshop Tip: What is the difference between assign a color profile or to convert a color profile? Here it is: Assign / convert a color profile in Adobe Photoshop!
“I personally work in my Photoshop illustration file in Adobe RGB and leave all the layers, masks and paths intact. Once my illustration is done, I flatten the PSD file, get rid off all paths and save it out as a Tiff file. My agent SIS prefers RGB files while my printer wants a CMYK file and he lets me know the preferred color profile his printing press wants. The key to this problem: communicate with your client/printer!”

Deutsche Version
Photoshop Tipp: Was ist der Unterschied zwischen Farbprofil zuweisen oder umwandeln? Hier ist die Anleitung dazu: Wie man Farbprofile umwandelt / zuweist in Adobe Photoshop!
“Ich arbeite gerne “nicht destruktiv” mit Adobe Photoshop und bleibe in Adobe RGB mit allen Ebenen, Masken und Pfade. Wenn meine Illustration fertig ist, reduziere ich meine Datei auf eine Ebene und speichere es als Tiff Datei. Mein Agent SIS möchte RGB files, meine Druckerei möchte aber CMYK files und er lässt es mich wissen, welches Farbprofil ich verwenden soll. Die Lösung zum Problem: kommuniziere mit dem Kunden/Druckerei!”

TIP OF THE WEEK: Symbols in Adobe Illustrator

Are you not good in drawing? Use your Symbol library provided by Illustrator CS6!
Go to Menu > Window > Symbols and click on the library which opens the Symbol collection.
In our sample we’ve used the RETRO collection and have chosen the guitar.
Once the selected Symbol shows up in your own Symbol library, you may click on the “un-link” icon, which breaks the link to the secure Adobe collection.

Symbole

Your symbol now shows anchor points which allows you to recolor and make it your own illustration. The Direct Selection Tool (white arrow) is able to choose each part separately which makes it easy to make your alterations.

TIPP DER WOCHE: Symbole in Adobe Illustrator

Können Sie nicht gut selber zeichnen? Benutzen Sie die Symbol-Bibliothek in Illustrator CS6!
Gehen Sie im Menü unter Fenster > Symbole und öffnen unten links Ihre Symbol-Bibliothek.
In unserem Beispiel öffneten wir die RETRO Sammlung und wählten die Gitarre aus der Adobe Kollektion.
Sobald Ihr gewähltes Symbol in Ihrer Bibliothek auftaucht, können Sie die Verknüpfung zur geschützten Adobe Kollektion unterbrechen.

Symbole

Da nun Ihr Symbol die Ankerpunkte zeigt, können Sie Ihr Symbol jetzt umfärben und zur eigenen Illustration verwandeln. Mit dem Direktauswahl-Werkzeug (weisser Pfeil) können Sie jeden Teil separat anwählen und verändern.
