Welcome back to Deke’s Techniques. This week, Deke shows how to convert an image from the RGB profile to CMYK—a process designers often need to go through when they’re sending their work to be printed commercially. However, Deke’s spin on this technique is an unconventional method that preserves more of your luminance data, using the Multichannel mode in Adobe Photoshop. Click the video below to start learning.
lynda.com members can also watch the followup video in which Deke shows you how to tone down the shadows in the new CMYK image to make sure they’re printer–safe. Come back next Tuesday to learn how to add a motion-trail effect to your photos.
