    If i have process colour values what is the quickest way to find out the Pantone number without fanning through the books?

    How about Photoshop's color picker? Assure your CMYK color settings are referencing the source profile that rendered the original process colors in question, open the ColorPicker and enter thise CMYK values, then select Color Libraries. and the appropriate Library. The closest PMS color based on the LAB values will pop up. I'd back this up with a reference to the Panatone book if you need to refer to a physical swatch.

      This question was brought up not very long ago. I think the general consensus was that Photoshop's the answer. My opinion is still to look at the book (or at least bother to check the book after the computer has given you its opinion).

        Ah, thank you, did a quick search but it didn't bring that thread up. Problem solved though!
