Illustrator & Photoshop colours do not matchwith same colour profile - Adobe Illustrator Windows

Hi, I'm using Illustrator & Photoshop CS2 on a win xp pro machine.

    Default Illustrator & Photoshop colours do not matchwith same colour profile

    Hi, I'm using Illustrator & Photoshop CS2 on a win xp pro machine.

    Despite taking a lot of time to ensure the colour settings are the same, and following the advice in another post to save the settings in Photoshop and load them in Illustrator, some colours do not match.

    Specifically, if I use Pantone 289C in Photoshop, and then copy/paste that across into Illustrator, it doesn't match the Pantone 289C colour in Illustrator. The photoshop colour is at least a shade darker.

    I've tried choosing North America General Purpose 2, along with Europe GP2, and other variations, but I can't get the colours to match.

    any ideas please?

    Regards, mark

    Mark,

    In Photoshop, the colour values of Pantone colours are described in
    L*a*b colour space. However, Illustrator doesn't support such a
    device-independent colour space. Consequently, the Pantone colours are
    described in some unknown CMYK colour space. This inevitably leads to
    differences. The on-screen representation of Pantone colours is more
    accurate in Photoshop.

    Illustrator CS2 does support Lab and RGB alternate color space for spot colors. However, these spot colors are still represented in doent color space, unless you turn on Overprint Preview which is turned off by default.

    Please give it another try by turning on View > Overprint Preview.

    The color model of the photoshop file and Illustrator file should be the same; both should be cmyk (or rgb).
