Lesson 14. Ensuring Consistent Color > Components of a CMYK press-oriented work...

Components of a CMYK press-oriented workflow

In a CMYK workflow, you work with CMYK images prepared for a specific printing press or proofing device, or legacy (archived) CMYK images. You generate a source profile based on your press or contract-proofing standard and embed it into the CMYK images or assign the profile in InDesign. The profile enables consistent CMYK printing at other color-managed sites, such as when printing a widely distributed magazine on presses in many different cities. Because you use color management, the reliability and consistency of color display improves across all of your workstations. For final printed output, you select a printer profile in the Print dialog box that describes your contract-proofing standard or your printing press.
