  • Since my first column on color coding1 appeared, we have received a number of e-mails asking us to highlight the issue of color blindness. [...] Key Method In Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, first convert the document to RGB color space for accurate simulation and create a soft proof (View > Proof Setup > Color Blindness). Simultaneously viewing the original and the soft proof (Window > Arrange > New Window in Photoshop) makes it convenient to adjust colors in order to make them universally accessible.
