Define full-tone spot colors

You can type color values in the color space of the source profile or printer, or you can measure a color patch in CIE L*a*b* or CIE LCH.

Before you begin, make sure you have added a custom spot color.
  1. Under My Custom Spot Colors, select a spot color.
  2. On the Color Definition tab, under Spot color definition at 100%, do one or both of the following.
    • Independent—Connect your measuring device, click Measure, and follow the on-screen instructions to measure a color patch. Spot colors that are measured in the L*a*b* color space can be included in the dynamic wedge.

      The default measuring device is ES-2000. If you have an ES-1000, you must select it first in the Preferences dialog box.

    • Dependent—Type color values in the color space of the source profile or printer. Then, select a spot color type, and type color values in the appropriate boxes.

      Note: To define 100% white ink, clear ink, or metallic inks, select Printer, and then select Automatic as the spot color type. The additional ink channels are listed as “1”, “2” and “3”. Rest the pointer on “1”, “2” or “3” to show the respective ink channel.
You can now go on to add color gradients, if required.
