I have downloaded a Free vector (.cdr) file which was designed using RGB color. This files has 100's of objects that are in color with RGB..
Is there a way to convert the RGB color's to cmyk without having to do each one by hand?
Maybe some kind of "Macro?
I need to do this because I am going to have this design printed on a T-Shirt and the printer uses "CMYK 4-Color Process" for their printing.
You could just use Edit>Find and Replace>Replace Objects>Replace a color model. You'll have to do it once for fills and once for outlines.
The easiest and most reliable way is to convert all colors to CMYK at export or print time. I assume you are going to send either PDF, EPS or PostScript file to your printer provider. Set "Output colors as:" to "CMYK" in either PDF or EPS export dialogs or on Color tab of Print dialog if you need to output to PostScript.
This is what I was looking for, as I needed to convert the original image from RGB to CMYK.
I want to thank everyone for their answers.
Converting colors via "Find and Replace" functionality only replaces colors in object fills and outlines, it also covers gradient fills and blends. It can not convert colors in images, full vector patterns or in embedded EPS content, if you are not careful you still might end up with RGB colors in the output.
One advantage of keeping content in RGB and only converting it to CMYK on output stage is that this approach gives you more flexibility in the future - if you ever have to change print provider, you can print it to non-PostScript printers without nasty surprises like faded blacks, and high-gamut inkjets will be able to output more vibrant colors ( if they are present in the design).
Thanks Evan!I used this!
