ASE colour files

These ase cross-platform colour libraries work in a range of design applications including PhotoShop, Illustrator and InDesign to enable you to quickly and easily select Resene colours for your designs.

Download the ase files from this web page and save to your computer in a location where they will be easy to find. Make sure they retain the ase file extension. When opening in Photoshop and InDesign, make sure you have ase selected as a file extension so it can find the downloaded files.

In PhotoShop - you can call up the Library you want (follow filepath to Presets folder/Color Swatches and all colours in that library appear in your PhotoShop Swatches dropdown list.

InDesign - There are two methods: (both require you to follow the filepath to the Swatch library in Presets)
1. 'Add New Swatch' and you can bring in each colour one at a time;
2. 'Load Swatches' and you can bring in each Library’s full colour list. If any colour is not used, simply 'Select Unused' and then "Delete Swatch' and they will be deleted so your file just has the used colours associated with it.

To add a single colour to InDesign: choose 'Add new Swatch'. One is selected and it's added to the InDesign Swatch colour list.

To add ALL colours at once choose 'Load Swatches' :
