In this Quick Tip, we’ll learn how to Export the Swatches of a project from Illustrator to Photoshop, here’s how to do it fast.
While working on a project I tend to work with different programs from the adobe suite, starting a project in Illustrator and continuing it in Photoshop, this way I can keep the same colours in both programs
Step 1 – Export from Illustrator
Open up a project in Illustrator, go to the Swatches panel and delete the swatches you don’t want.
Next select the Swatches you want to export, open up the menu list in the Swatches panel and select Export Swatch Library as ASE…, save your swatch library where you want and open up Photoshop.
Step 2 – Import in Photoshop
In Photoshop, go to the Swatches panel, open the menu list in this panel and select Load Swatches and find that your swatches set is loaded and available in Photoshop.
You can use this tip to export your Illustrator Projects Swatches in any programs from the adobe suite or the other way around, this saves you a lot of time while working on the same project using two or more programs from the adobe suite.
