RGB vs CMKY
Posted on 2002-03-05
I am a web developer so what I am used to is making all my graphics in GRB format at 72 dpi. I have decided that I want to design my own business card, and from everything I am seeing, I need to do it at 300 dpi in CMKY.
My problem is I have never used CMKY before. Right off the bat, when I tried to recreate my logo in CMKY, the color was all off.
the blue I am using has a hex color of #0000FF, which translates to 240/100/100.
When I tried using this under CMKY the color was VERY dark. When I put in the above hex value, it is getting changed to #3953A4.
How do I use the same colors I am used to using in RGB??
