As of March 2022 Pantone will be leaving Adobe - If you totally missed the news, that's not surprising; it was quietly announced by Adobe at the end of November 2021, and many graphic arts professionals are still trying to figure out what the repercussions will be. Meanwhile, Abode has told users to "stay tuned for updates."
THE PANTONE APP alternative
Pantone is directing its users to download Pantone Connect, an app that's available via the
Adobe Extension Marketplace for use in Adobe Creative Suite, App Store® (iOS) and Google Play® (Android) for your smartphone, and as a web application for your web browser.
Pantone Connect provides access to more than 15,000 colors on the free version. The premium, paid version includes more colors and additional features, such as accessibility support and collaboration tools.
The jury is still out on how bumpy this change in workflow will be for both designers and printers, but will definitely mean an added cost for those who want to continue accessing the full gamut of Pantone colors within Adobe products. At the time of this writing, the app costs $7.99/month or $59.99/year. https://www.pantone.com/connect/pricing
