Every year, Pantone, the global color authority, selects a colour of the year. Greenery is a fresh, bright green that evokes the natural world – and it’s Pantone’s color of the year for 2017. But how can you use the new Greenery 15-0343 with your Adobe applications?
If you go to Pantone’s website, you can download ase files to use with Adobe applications: https://www.pantone.com/color-of-the-year-2017. A folder of colours will appear in your Downloads folder.
You can drag the Greenery folder from your Downloads folder into the Swatches folder, in the en_US folder, in the Presets folder of Adobe Illustrator folder that is in your Applications. Do the same for Adobe Photoshop and InDesign.
Now, you have to load them separately into each program, but they will show up separately—not in the folder.
In Adobe Photoshop, click on the sub-menu in the top-right corner of the Swatches palette and choose Load Swatches. Find the folder that you downloaded. It may be in your Downloads folder.
In Adobe Illustrator, click on the sub-menu in the top-right corner of the Swatches palette and choose Open Swatch Library and go across to Open Library. Find the folder that you downloaded. It may be in your Downloads folder.
