    Over the next few hours, I've got to take some PMS solid coated swatches and convert them to RGB and Hex values; something I never usually have to do, being a print designer. I don't have any guides here at home tonight so have to do this electronically.

    For the same chip, I'm getting different RGB and Hex results from Illustrator, Photoshop and Art Directors Toolkit which isn't helping matters at all.

    And also different to ones presented here.

    Advice?

    Thanks

    Sorry to double post, but given the deadline, I did a little more digging and found this from David Blatner, who I rate tremendously highly:

    Case closed for me for now, for this job. I've got to get on with things... I'd still be interested in hearing other's opinions, though.
