      Welcome to the forum, Dreamz.

      When you have a moment, please have a look at these important threads posted here. They will explain a lot about how the forum runs, from the rules and regulations to frequently discussed topics to the background on some of our lingo and inside jokes.

      Four-color uses the inks Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black to simulate all of the other colors. If you look at the Sunday color comics with a magnifying glass, you'll see a pattern of dots using those four colors.

              Yes, well a report. I want to be a graphic designer when I get older and I am doing a report on the career. I understand photoshop and illustrator, and I really haven't talked about indesign yet. I was looking at job requirements for graphic artist and that's when I saw, needs thorough knowledge of 4 color production, so I had always thought that was more of a printing process rather than something a graphic artist uses? I'm confused.

                Graphic artist? Or graphic designer. Print designer or Web designer?

                Graphic designers tend to print things sooner or later. Printers for the most part use CMYK inks. You have to know how and when to use them.
                And when not to.
                Not every print process is CMYK.
                Not every CMYK printer wants CMYK imagery.

                    Are they something you are trying to right click?
                    That doesn't always work. There are web tricks out there that make doing that give you a blank file.

                    Thanks PrintDriver. These are images downloaded from Ancestry.com and show census forms etc. I'll contact them and see if they can help.

                    PrintDriver
                    Monitors are sort of a matter of opinion.
                    I do all my pre-press work on not so expensive Viewsonic monitors in a dual monitor setup. I already know that for print, my monitor will not accurately...

                    You would get point-type (broken up bits of type) is if you upgraded in the meantime. Illustrator has the most awful habit of converting lesser versions to point type UNLESS you click the Yes button when...
