  • Photoshop and quark color

    I'm a little new at this graphic desgin stuff, so bear with me. I've created a background in Photoshop and inserted it as a picture in my quark layout and then put text over it. When it print from quark the colors come out different then when I print from photoshop. Why is that which is going to be more accurate once it goes to the printer, using a 4 color process?

      Sounds like you're creating RGB images in photoshop, and when you print, you're likely printing using CMYK ... conversion between RGB and CMYK can have unecpected results with your colours.

                      Most of the time that type of vinyl is printed eco-sol or full solvent so there wouldn't be any build up. It's not made for water base inks.

                      Free stock is quite often worth exactly what you pay for it.
                      Check the number of downloads too. A really popular piece of free stock that is downloaded often is not going to provide much of a custom...

                      I think you may have a misconstrued notion of the ''agency'' model. It is not, as you have alluded to in your line of questioning, a grouping of designers who churn out designs in a bull-pen like situ,...

                      I was just going to suggest this.
                      About 5 years ought to give you at least an overview.
                      Since you sound like you would pretty much start at ground zero.
