When I use the find and replace feature to change from RGB to CMYK the colours come out a lot different. Usually a lot dark is this normal? I have used a online colour picker and the cmyk values are different to what coreldraw changes them to. Can anyone help me out here please? thanks in adavance
Yes, out of cmyk gamut rgb colors with change significantly when converted.
Thank you for your reply, so is it best for me to manually change these colours? I have used this site https://www.colorhexa.com/ and it seems when I put in the hex number it comes up with as close to the RGB colour in the CMYK as possible.
I am working in darker blues and bright reds at the moment so they are not coming out too different from the RGB colours. Thank you for your input I have read a few of your previous posts on this matter, I still don't completely understand it but I am getting little more educated on it.
I have no idea about this site. What I can tell you is that out of gamut colors cannot print, they must be changed to in gamut colors.
Hex is RGB as it was designed for web. I'd design in CMYK to start with for CMYK work. What part of the world do you work?
Hi David, thanks again for your reply. The problem is I am trying to create a brand guideline and I need to add a colour palette with both RGB and CMYK. I am in New Zealand
Ok if you need a color guide I have some questions.
Is the art already created?
If so is it created in RGB or CMYK?
What ICC profiles were used in the creation of the art?
Is the color guide to be used internationally or only regionally?
Do you need a web standard?
What you want to do is time consuming but not complicated.
