I have this scanned image from a magazine that I have scanned myself, from this image I want to obtain certain colors, and I want them to be from a Pantone pallet, is there a way to do this?
To be more clear I want to do something that this tool does:
Is there any kind software for this purpose ?
For total accuracy, you would have to use actual Pantone color swatches, as e100 says. If the magazine is more than a year or two old, then that level of accuracy becomes a bit academic because the original colors will have changed due to fading.
You can get “in the ballpark” fairly easily, though, with Photoshop.
Open the scanned document in Photoshop.
Sample the color you are interested in. (Be sure to set the sample size to 5×5 or greater, because you’re probably sampling a scan of a CMYK screen. The largest sample size you can get away with is best.)
Open the color swatch for editing in the Color Picker.
Click on “Color Libraries” in the dialog. Color library (color book) swatches will replace the usual HSB color picker. The default is Pantone+ Solid Coated, but you can switch to any of the other color books.
