    Why do my designs look much more vibrant in Flexi-8, than they do in photo paint? Im using rgb98 for my montior in both. I'm pretty good at determining the output in corel, but it's been bothering me lately.
    Any reccomendations would be helpful!
    Thank you

    I'm not sure... from Draw! to Illustrator my colors look completely different too.
    Check Tools>Color Management and see if you can get them to work together.

    What you need to do is create a profile (ICC) for your monitor and use it.

    What color space are you working in from photo paint?

    Chances are its not the monitor profile you need to sync, its the one between the two programs. Also, check to see if you are running relative colormetric in one and absolute in the other...that will definitely affect it.
     
  6. Zeth,

    I noticed the same when I move a photo image from Draw to Paint and then back to Draw ??

    The more I know, the more I know I don't know.....and its killing me.

    Under Tools, Color Mgmt, click the center CMYK icon there. In there are two dropdowns, the default of the top one is set to Automatic, the bottom one (for me) is either Kodak or Microsoft ICM. The top one is where you can choose the Rendering Intent. Personally, I've left mine at Automatic.
