Does anyone know how a drawing in CMYK can be converted to RGB ? At present i am selecting each element of the drawing and manually converting it.Tried the Visual Basic 'File Converter' option, but it doesn't work.
I hope there is a better way as i have many images to convert. A solution to this will be greatly appreciated.
Hi Jaya,Being a illustrator myself, drawing a lot, could you please let us know why your drawings take long time to convert to RGB?You wrote this question in CorelDRAWX3. Does this mean you have a bitmap scanned image or anything else in your CorelDRAW document?If your line drawing is a bitmap, jpg, tiff and so on?
For example when I have a linedrawing, sketch without several colours, that I like to convert from example RGB to CMYK or Grayscale and so on, I useally do like this.If you have your image inside CorelDRAW then select your image and press the button called "Edit Bitmap" which will open Corel Photo-Paint. Or you open Corel Photo-Paint from start and from there open the image, drawing.When you have your image in Photo-Paint, go to the Menu bar and via IMAGE > Convert to RGB or whatever colour you like.And then SAVE.
Thanks very much for your reply.
I guess i should have been more elaborate. I have this set of images which are vector drawings in the .cdr format. There are no bitmap images in them. Actually i have to convert them into the .svg format. However since they have CMYK color, it shows up as an error while saving to SVG. It says that there are 'Non RGB' colors in the file.Therefore i have been converting each color in each drawing manually into RGB. So, was looking for a way in which i can convert the whole image to RGB as then i can save them as .svg without errors. Cannot 'select all' and save as there are line drawings in the image which get filled up. Also, there are different colors in a single drawing.
Do let me know if you have a solution to this.
I suggest you use the find & replace in CorelDRAW to change the color model from CMYK to RGB. You will have to search for CMYK color model& replace with RGB Color Model. Please note that the colors may change a bit because of color gamut.
Thanks for making life easier for me :) This works well and i can now do the conversion fast.
My pleasure Jaya.
