rgb to cmyk

I need to convert a couple of images from RGB to CMYK. How to do it properly in PS, what is the be way to do it in PS? Is there something I need to look at, take into consideration (which paper will be used, which printer...)

Thank you

Re: rgb to cmyk

- you should have a final cmyk profile
- check gamut warning & make corrections
- convert to your cmyk profile
- make final color & contrast corrections in cmyk

Re: rgb to cmyk

who do I ask for the final cmyk profile? Is it the printer? Which photoshop tool would you recommend to make the cmyk corrections - color correction?

Re: rgb to cmyk

you should get it from a dtp or printer.

Is it for inkjet or offset printing? For offset printing I use black & white point adjustment - in levels 5/250. Better to ask the printer

It does not matter which tool you will use for color corrections ... you should touch color saturation for sure.
