Additional $15 for using Pantone Colours on Adobe?
Adobe, a renowned software amongst designers, photographers, and many other professionals, has been working with Pantone for a while.
Recently, Pantone claimed that its colour libraries in Adobe had not been updated, which meant that not only were those colours possibly incorrect but there were hundreds of new Pantone colours that had not been added. Rather than update it, Adobe opted to pull its support with a public statement.
"Pantone and Adobe have together decided to remove the outdated libraries and jointly focus on an improved in-app experience that better serves our users."
Pantone sits on the throne as the "ruler of the colour trends" and also decides the colour of the year. The colour of the year for 2022 was Very Peri, a new Pantone colour whose courageous presence encourages personal inventiveness and creativity.
According to Kotaku, Adobe has now removed support for free Pantone colours across its Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator Creative Cloud applications and PSD files that contained Pantone spot colours now display unwanted black in their place.
Creatives who need access to industry-standard colour books now need to subscribe to Pantone.
