Converting Images

Images you create don’t have to remain in the original color mode. Photoshop makes it easy to convert to another color mode when needed. This section walks you through a few of the more common color mode conversion scenarios.

Choosing CMYK Color

Adobe recommends that you perform most color corrections (and other edits) to an image before you convert the image to CMYK color for professional printing. (Adobe also recommends that you save a copy of the image file before converting to CMYK, so that you can work with the original colors in the image, if needed, at a later time.) You convert to CMYK when the image is ready to facilitate a print shop creating color separations—a separate piece of film for each ink color, used for creating a plate to print each color ink. Typically, you’ll convert to CMYK color from RGB color, as in the following steps.
