Lesson 3. Color Management and Distribution > Color-separating an image

Color-separating an image

You can convert an image from an RGB color space to the destination CMYK space in several ways. Choosing Image > Mode > CMYK Color simply converts colors to the chosen CMYK color space using the default rendering intent. You’ll try a more flexible method that lets you choose the destination space and rendering intent.

A rendering intent is the translation method used to optimize how source colors are adjusted when they are converted to another color space, such as for printing. Rendering intents use different rules to determine how the source colors are adjusted; for example, colors that fall inside the destination gamut may remain unchanged, or they may be adjusted to preserve the original range of visual relationships as translated to a smaller destination gamut.
