  • 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.

                      As a printer, I've had my fair share of client tears and chin quivers when their ''web only'' brand standard has to be printed in the real world. The RGB color gamut is much larger than CMYK. Even when...

                      I created my first signature in 12 years of not touching Photoshop or any graphics program in general. What do you guys think?
