    Any help would be appreciated


    When I pick a colour with the colour picker in illustrator it displays ad darker and more vibrant in the working space. this is leading me to create shit that looks really washed out. How do I make the colour choice in the picker consistant with the working space?


    thanks.

    I dont know really, not an Illus Pro. Edit>Color Management maybe?

    Or maybe you need some kind of external color managing system.

    maybe you have a suck monitor. You might want to consider getting yourself a Pantone color swatch book so you will know exactly what color will be printed out.
    Or maybe google.

    These are photoshop tutorials but maybe if you poked around you could find something for illustrator.

    Could be your CRT, could be your HSV to RGB to CYMK or whatever the hell alphanumeric crap... I don't have any idea honestly. But there are specific things you could troubleshoot relating to color management.

    Colors on screen will never print exactly the same because
    they are two different technologies the screen being lights
    RGB, and printing CMYK. Use the pms color system and have
    a pms booklet with you to see what the color will print like,
    before sending the job out to a printer go to your color pallet
    and trash the pms samples, this will convert the colors in
    your piece toCMYK and not throw the printer off.

    Or perhaps your printer sucks

    heh.. seriously.. sounds like you color management profile. also, since it's being saved as a jpeg, could be the compression.

    If it's being saved for web start off by setting your pallet up with web-only colors
    other wise you'll lose clarity in the translation. Printing has the ability to show tens
    if not hundreds of times the amount of color than internet, when you start with the
    regular pallet of colors it assumes your designing for print, and when you go to
    save for web it'll choose what web-color it feels is the closest substitute.
