Pantone Invents More Colours
Pantone has released an installer to add their new PANTONE PLUS libraries to Adobe Creative Suite 5.
For nearly 50 years, the Pantone Matching System has enabled designers to accurately specify colour for the commercial print world. This past May, Pantone (now owned by X-Rite) released a major update to their basic colour palette with PANTONE PLUS. This update differs from the recently launched Pantone GOE system in that it still contains all the standard Pantone colours that designers and printers are used to working with. Pantone Plus adds 566 new PLUS SERIES colours including a wide range of pastels and metallics.
Adobe Creative Suite users can download a free installer from Pantone to add the latest libraries to InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop.
The Installer includes the following PANTONE PLUS Color Libraries:
PANTONE PLUS Solid Coated
PANTONE PLUS Solid Uncoated
PANTONE PLUS COLOR BRIDGE Coated
PANTONE PLUS COLOR BRIDGE Uncoated
PANTONE PLUS PREMIUM METALLICS Coated
PANTONE PLUS PASTELS & NEONS Coated
PANTONE PLUS PASTELS & NEONS Uncoated
PANTONE PLUS CMYK Coated
PANTONE PLUS CMYK Uncoated
You’ll be able to tell the different libraries apart because the new colours will have a “PANTONE+” designation in the Library name.
