    I had to switch from freehand to adobe illustrator in the last year(which sucked). I use Ai and photoshop. Why is it when you copy an image from Ai and paste it into photoshop, the black(100% black) is no longer black? It is C: 70% M: 67% Y: 65% K: 74%. I have to select the color and change it to 100% black. Is there a setting or something? I have tried RGB to RGB and CMYK to CMYK with the same result.

    check your edit>preferences> appearance of black setting in both programs. in illustrator make sure the export is to "accurate black" and not "rich black".

    Yeah you should make sure all setting in illustrator reflect "actual colors" and not another variation

    What the others have said, but also, make sure both programs are in the same color mode whether it is RGB or CMYK. That way you won't see any differences if you use the "Rich black." I notice most people that say something about the blacks looking different though, usually find themselves working in CMYK on illustrator and RGB in Photoshop, since to have access to all the filters and every option, it has to be in RGB.

    It already has grown on me but Freehand had some things that were much more user friendly. Like "Paste Inside"!
