All those missing Pantone Colours
Has anyone else out there found themselves wondering why Adobe products don't have the very latest Pantone swatches installed as standard? I have a situation today where a customer has found a specific Pantone colour they want to use in a project - but it's a Pantone Plus colour, PMS 2374. If you try to add this swatch in InDesign it won't be there.
It seems that the only way I can use this PMS colour is to buy a bit of software from Pantone called 'Pantone Color Manager' that costs £90.
I just find myself thinking that I already pay for my Adobe software so it seems a bit much to have to pay more. Does anyone else feel the same way?
I know Adobe and Pantone are different companies , but surely some kind of deal could be struck. After all, Pantone colours are pretty integral to most design processes and as designers we can't avoid using them.
