Adobe InDesign: how can I get the CMYK code from a color that I have saved in RGB in the swatches?


Question

I'm making a work for school and I have to put together color palettes for some pictures. I also want to indicate the RGB and the CMYK code but when I get a color from a picture with the Eyedropper Tool I only get the RGB. I assume it is so because the picture is in RGB mode.

How can I get in a fast way the correspondent CMYK code for that specific color? (In fact I see default colors in the swatches above mine that are in CMYK...maybe there's a way to switch easily from RGB to CMYK inside the swatches..)

Right click the swatch on your swatch panel. Go to Swatch Options. Change the Color Mode to CMYK. You will get decimal points which isn't a problem really but if it annoys you just then decide to round up or round down.
