Thank you, Shaun,

In answer to the RGB <> Pantone conversion there is such tools.  CorelDraw, for example, allows you to select a RGB or CMYK colour and matches it to the nearest Pantone colour.  Of course, these are only approximates as the RGB spectrum is very much different to the CMYK or the Pantone...  and the Pantone model does not include all posible combination of Red, Green and Blue or Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black.

Indeed, due to the restrictive nature of the CMYK model Pantone came up a couple of years ago with an improved Hexachrome colour model that adds 2 more inks to the CMYK model.

If you are interested in doing accurate colour model conversion and can convince your boss to fork the money, you would like to take a look at the Pantone website (www.pantone.com) for tools on colour management.

Good vibes!!



thanks for suming up what I learnt the hard way
