Chapter 15. Shadows > RGB Versus CMYK

RGB Versus CMYK

I usually create all my shadows while I'm in RGB mode, even if the end result will need to be in CMYK mode. Here are a few reasons why I prefer to work in RGB mode:

  • The natural shadow technique described earlier in this chapter will produce shadows that appear slightly brown if applied while in CMYK mode.

  • The Multiply blending mode can cause problems with too much ink in an area if used in CMYK mode.

  • File sizes remain smaller with RGB.

  • All the filters work in RGB mode.
