Lesson 12. Producing and Printing Consistent Color

Lesson 12. Producing and Printing Consistent Color


To produce consistent color, you define the color space in which to edit and display RGB images, and in which to edit, display, and print CMYK images. This helps ensure a close match between on-screen and printed colors.


In this lesson, you'll learn how to do the following:

  • Define RGB, grayscale, and CMYK color spaces for displaying, editing, and printing images.

  • Prepare an image for printing on a PostScript® CMYK printer.

  • Proof an image for printing.

  • Create a color separation, the process by which the colors in an RGB image are distributed to the four process ink colors: cyan, magenta, yellow, and black.

  • Understand how images are prepared for printing on presses.

This lesson will take about 60 minutes to complete. The lesson is designed to be done in Adobe Photoshop.

If needed, remove the previous lesson folder from your hard drive, and copy the Lesson 12 folder onto it. As you work on this lesson, you'll overwrite the start files. If you need to restore the start files, copy them from the Adobe Photoshop Classroom in a Book CD.
