Pantone Connect

Pantone Connect is a powerful digital color platform for mobile, web, and Pantone Connect extension for Adobe® Creative Cloud® that puts the power of Pantone right in your hands! Ten million designers around the world rely on Pantone for their color critical decisions and you should, too.

Pantone Connect is now the only way to access 15,000+ essential brand, print, fashion, and packaging colors for use in your digital design projects. Packed with easy-to-use tools for inspiration, color extraction, matching, secure storage, and sharing of custom palettes, it’s also now the only way to bring dynamic Pantone colors into your Adobe® design programs.

Unlike Adobe® Creative Cloud, Pantone Connect is always up-to-date. Over 5,600 Pantone Colors are missing from the Pantone Swatch Libraries in Adobe® Creative Cloud, including 826 Pantone Matching System (PMS) colors and all of the Fashion, Home + Interior system colors. New Pantone Colors are not being added to Adobe® Swatch Libraries going forward except through Pantone Connect.

Pantone Connect Features Include:
- Search/Find: Search over 15,000 Pantone Colors in more than a dozen separate libraries to find the exact colors you want.
- Pick: Select your desired colors for a given project and see Pantone Reference Numbers for each color selected.
- Measure: Pair the Pantone Color Match Card with the Pantone Connect Mobile App to capture color inspiration wherever you find it.
- Create Palettes: Save the colors you want into custom palettes for secure storage in the cloud and for access anywhere you happen to be.
- Share: Share palettes with people up and down your workflow to ensure everyone is on from the same color page.
- Collaborate: Work together with teams, clients, printers, and brands to reach a shared vision and definitive color consensus.
- Convert: Find the nearest RGB/CMYK/Hex/L*a*b* color equivalents to Pantone Colors or convert Pantone Colors in one library to their nearest equivalents in another.
- Extract: Isolate any color you see in a digital file to identify the nearest Pantone Color match for use in your own custom palettes.
- View Color Data: Get critical color info including RGB/CMYK/Hex/L*a*b* data.
- My Color Story: Use this NEW feature to create custom collages of one, three, or five images, then sample isolated colors in those images to express your own unique color story.
- Export to ASE Files: Save your colors as Adobe Swatch Exchange (ASE) files to easily share them between popular Adobe® programs like Photoshop®, Illustrator®, or InDesign®.
- Accessibility Support: Check your palettes to see how people with common color blindness challenges may perceive your choices.
- Light & Dark Simulations: Compare your color selections against light and dark backgrounds to make sure they’re as functional as possible.
- Color Harmonies: Find ideal pairings of analogous, complementary, or monochromatic colors to pair with your color of choice.
