RGB to CMYK

RGB to CMYK

RGB to CMYK

(OP)
I recently did a layout for a brochure.  After creating it I realized it was in RGB instead of the required CMYK needed for the four color printing process.  To change it, I simply went in and changed the document color mode setup from RGB to CMYK.  After I submitted it again, I was told that that didn't change the pictures and graphics to CMYK.  How would I change them to CMYK?

RE: RGB to CMYK

Hi,

You only changed the view mode. If there are any placed images in your brochure, the best is to go to the original images and change them into CMYK. Reopen the Illustrator file and use the link palette to update tyour RGB images to your CMYK version. I would suggest after that you do a 'select all' and go to filter>colours>convert to CMYK. Now everything is set to CMYK and you bring your brovhure to the printer.

hope this helps
