How to convert RGB to CMYK


How to convert RGB to CMYK

In this tutorial I’ll teach you how to convert RGB to CMYK, you’re images that is ­čśë For those that don’t have a clue what RGB and CMYK are: They’re are what we call colour spaces. What that means is that ex. in an RGB (Red Green Blue) image all the colours are made of a mix of red, green and blue. The reason it’s important to convert to CMYK is that most printers print in this colour space, and to get the best result, and to see what we’ll get out of the printer we have to do the conversion like I show you in the video.

    Awesome. Super helpful. I was having issues converting some artwork I designed for the web to CMYK to print–the colors looked like shit and were very´╗┐ dull. Using this method and then playing with the curves a bit I was able to get something that looks pretty close to the original. Thanks.

    Having just been made “Photography Editor” for a startup newspaper (no´╗┐ one else wanted the job!), and now being in charge of prepress photo conversions for offset printing, I found your tutorial so helpful! I had the commercial printer’s specs, but it never even occurred to me to check for OOG colors before converting. I’ll try this for the next issue’s print run. ­čÖé

    sadly no because it’s not the actual colours that are the problem it’s the printers ability to “make” these colours. So you’ll just get a slight desaturation in´╗┐ those areas, but that’s why we do it manually (to try and keep the colour as good as possible)

  24. 3whisperer

    Great, is there a trick where you can simulate these´╗┐ colors that are out of the gamut?
